Description

“Dying As I Know It: How to Skillfully Open a Dialogue about Death”
January 25th in Zettmar studio, 3pm-5pm
($30 cash, check or Venmo.) Please RSVP to kerstin@Zettmar.com or call 401-848-0288

In this Soul School Series session, we will address the taboo topic of death. In a society that often sees death as failure, or as the enemy, people often find themselves very alone and unsure of how to be and what to do, when a loved one gets a terminal illness. And yet, we will likely all be in that situation someday, no matter who we are.
Ron Hoffman of West Falmouth, founder and executive director of Compassionate Care ALS and author of “Sacred Bullet: Transforming Trauma to Grace while Tending the Terminally Ill,” helps people and their families navigate the complexities of living and dying with ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
“There is no handbook on being with a friend, family member or patient with a terminal disease,” he says.
“As a culture that does not talk about death, there is a hole in the patient experience as death approaches, often with no one with whom to express wants and needs.” Hoffman will describe the landscape of a terminal illness and meaningful ways to create dialogue about death and dying for everyone involved.
He will define and discuss “tending,” the art of showing up fully for those facing terminal illness.
Ron is a great and authentic speaker, and there will be plenty of time for questions, dialogue and some experiential exercises in tending in this very important workshop.
