We can talk about all sorts of topics, including

Preparing for End of Life
What is an Advanced Care Directive or Plan? What is Death Plan? How do I make a legal will? How do I ensure my wishes are known?

Pre-planning Your Funeral
Do I have to use a funeral director? How will I pay for it? Who should attend? Where can I hold it? Are there ‘rules’?

Burial, Cremation and Beyond
How should I dispose of my body? Do I have to have a coffin? Do I want a memorial marker?

Caring for a Person Who Has Died
What can I do myself? What might I need help with? What really happens in a funeral home?

Good Grief
What impacts how we grieve? What is happening in our grieving body? How can we support others at this time? What is the role of ritual in grief?

Or tell us what you’re interested in, and we’ll customise a talk for you. Contact us today for more information on how to have a sensitive, inclusive and curious conversation for your group.
