Re-Imagining and Reclaiming the Natural Dying Process: A Presentation and Conversation
In North America, agency over how we die has moved from family-centered community care to costly corporate systems driven by profit. A medical conveyor belt disempowers and isolates our dying, causing hardship on already strained families and communities, compounding grief and trauma. But alternative end of life carers, community educators and innovators are bringing change to the way we die in America, reclaiming agency over a natural process by dispelling fear, sharing wisdom on accompanying the dying, tending to our dead, and facilitating grieving in community. Come explore how we can reclaim and reimagine our own dying and that of our beloveds. Facilitated by educators/end of life guides/community gatherers/activists: Anneke Campbell; Birgitta Kastenbaum; and Amber Deylon.
