Not everyone feels ready to sit down for a personal discussion about death anxiety or how to get their affairs in order, but they’d really like to learn more. Some people are curious about the dying process and ways to have a good death, but they don’t want the pressure of a one-on-one conversation with a doula. The whole idea makes them uncomfortable. That’s part of why I teach group classes and workshops around Chicago.
Normalizing Healthy Conversations About Death Without Pressure
I present these end-of-life educational events at Fourth Presbyterian’s popular Center for Life and Learning, Council for Jewish Elderly’s Senior Life series, Northwestern University’s “Adulthood and Aging” undergraduate program, and the Winnetka Women’s Exchange.
Countless other community and continuing education programs and retirement communities have sponsored my workshops to help their members learn more about death to enjoy a better life.
I also teach a doula program remotely to students worldwide through the Diaspora Psychedelic Society.
My workshops and presentations help people come to terms with and feel better about impermanence. There is joy in contemplating mortality and preparing for death in a way that also brings peace and grace to ourselves and our loved ones.
Interested in Attending?
What if you’re interested but don’t belong to one of these community organizations?
Or maybe you don’t live in Chicago but still want this information?
Good news! I’m offering these classes remotely to anyone who might benefit from them. Check out the dates, times, and topics below.
Every week in April we present one topic on two different days (11:30 am – 1 pm, central time) for you to choose from. Join us for informative, fun, and helpful lunch ‘n learns. Each session also includes an “Ask a Doula” Q&A at the end where I’ll answer all your questions. Registration is $20 per person.
