Death as a Part of Life
A program led by Jackie James
Time & Location
Jan 31, 2023, 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
About The Event
Death has become hidden, making it harder for us to come to terms with the reality of it. It hasn’t always been this way. The modern death-positive movement creates ways for those who want the chance to talk openly about mortality. We’ll explore how the Date with Death Club provides a chance to grow our comfort and knowledge about this topic.
Date with Death Club is an opportunity to explore talking about death at all stages of life. Most of us do not have much experience with this subject, but how we think about it can make a difference in how we live.
Jackie James will be leading a structured discussion. The curriculum, developed by UU minister, Karen Johnston, is based largely on the death positive movement that encourages people of all ages to speak openly about death, dying, and corpses. The program is designed to increase our comfort level with discussions of death and the role that awareness of mortality plays in our quality of life. It will be interactive and engaging. We look forward to using other aspects of this comprehensive curriculum over the next several years.
Registration is required. You will receive the Zoom link in your inbox.
There will be a repeat of this program on March 29.
