DEATH MATTERS 2020

A Day of Exploration & Discovery

NOV 20

CHRISTCHURCH

'What an amazing day. Thought-provoking, affirming, empowering, inspiring and motivating. I hope you run this again.'

—FEEDBACK FROM 2019 CONFERENCE

 

I want to make it easier, more accessible and empowering for all of us to talk about life and death so that things are not left until there is a crisis. When we accept our own mortality we make more authentic choices and live more creative, connected and meaningful lives in the process. Join us for a day of exploration and discovery with presentations and workshops on a variety of interesting subjects.

Who is it for

Although there were health professionals, counsellors, funeral directors and celebrants at last year's conference, the event is very much designed to engage the general community. The goal is to create connection, stimulate conversation, provoke new thinking and loosen up about the subject of death.

The presentations and workshops are chosen for their interest and relevance for all of us.
