About the Event
"Saying Goodbye: Preparing for Death"
Director: Johanna Lunn
Addressing our mortality head-on through honest conversation; opening the door about what is possible as we pass from this life.
Explore stories of near-death experiences and the nature of consciousness, which helps us decide how we want to be cared for at the end of life, reduces our fear of death and helps us live more fully.
We all know that nothing is certain except death and taxes, yet so many of us are uncomfortable talking about inevitable end-of-life experiences. You are invited to become better informed while also being inspired and entertained by new and established filmmakers, animators, and actors in this series of six exceptional films about death and dying.
You’re also invited to stay for an expert-led discussion about the issues raised in each particular film. Topics will include legacy, the spiritual side of death, alternative ways to die, preparedness, facing fear, and finding courage.
Gail Harris, a National Emmy Award-winning journalist for PBS and NPR, is our moderator. Harris is a former correspondent for ABC News Nightline and World News Tonight.
