Change the way you live and die.

When you consciously contemplate and connect with others around the reality of your mortality, it will change how you die—and how you live, right here, right now and for the rest of your life.

Transform end-of-life planning into a rich opportunity for personal growth and community connection.

At Willow Workshops® you will check things off your to-do list and learn, grow and even find joy in the process.

Willow Workshops® are a space for personal and group exploration, where instead of being lectured to, you'll actively engage with others through individual, pair, and group sharing exercises.

Greening Your Death and Aligning Your Values: A Willow Workshop®

Virtual

Presented by Willow Co-founder, Reena Lazar and Willow EOL Educator®, Debra White
 

June 4, 2024, from, 4:00-6:00 PM (Pacific Time / PDT)

  • 7:00-9:00 PM EDT
  • Jun 5: 9:00-11:00 am AEST

 

Do you do your best to live mindfully and walk lightly on the planet?

Do you wonder how you can "green" all the choices you have associated with your death?

Many of us do our best to live mindfully and walk lightly on our planet. Yet, we tend to give little consideration to the environmental impact of what happens to us after we die. This is partly because we live in a culture fraught with death denial.

Typically, when someone dies, a funeral provider is called to remove the person and arrange for either burial or cremation. Most people don’t take the time to understand the array of options within these two choices, or what alternatives are available in addition to these two choices. The good news is, many steps can be taken to green your death no matter where you live, and new options for greening your death are growing. 

In this workshop, you will:

  • Consider and articulate what about greening your death matters to you.
  • Discover the environmental impacts of various choices for after-death care.
  • Learn about green options that may be available in your region.
  • Consider the best way to align your values with your choices.

Have you ever started to talk about some aspect of end-of-life planning with someone and got shut down? Or maybe you’ve been wanting to talk about end-of-life planning but you’re lost about how to even broach the topic. You have ideas in your mind about how your people are going to react, and it’s just too uncomfortable to go there. 

Many of us understand the importance of preparing for your someday, one-day, inevitable death while you’re still healthy enough to do that.  But talking about death in a death-phobic and death-denying culture can be a challenge. Whether you’re thinking about your own end-of-life planning or you want to facilitate plans for someone else, it really helps to talk about it first!

In this workshop, you will:

  • Increase your readiness to undertake end-of-life planning, and other challenging conversations. 
  • Gain insight into the intentions, concerns, context, and importance of end-of-life planning conversations in your life. 
  • Be guided through key steps for having successful and meaningful end-of-life planning conversations.
  • Gain clarity about who and what matter most.
