Dying Well: Multi-Religious End of Life Conversations

Conversations about what it means to live well until the very end have a powerful impact on how we live--and how we die. Conversations can help preserve personal autonomy and respect for our faith-based values and practices. They can save families from making uninformed medical decisions when confronted by a crisis. They are an entryway to a deep spiritual practice. And, ultimately, they become a gift and a blessing for all.

While 90% of Americans think having these conversations is important, most of us don’t know how to begin them—or wait too long, which can be too late.

The BTI’s inaugural Life Long Learning conference is designed to provide you with direct experiences and resources you can use to facilitate these sacred conversations in your families and institutions so that no one is left in the dark about what matters most to our congregants and loved ones.

• Be inspired by faith leaders from Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam who will introduce you to various theological perspectives on care and conversations through the end of life. Panelists include: Chaplain Aida Mansour (Hartford Seminary); Rabbi Joel Baron (Hebrew Senior Life); Dr Phillip Mamalakis (Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology); Chris Berlin (Denominational Counselor for Buddhist Students, Harvard Divinity School); Dr M. Sara Rosenthal, PhD (University of Kentucky); and Rabbi Or Rose, Moderator (Miller Center/Hebrew College).

• Enjoy a rich, interactive conversation facilitated by the co-founder of The Hello Game, Jethro Heiko;

• Learn from Rev. Gloria White Hammond, MD, MDiv about her deep experience of having Planning Ahead conversations in her congregation.

• Reflect on what matters most to you with Rev. Rosemary Lloyd, BSN, MDiv, the Advisor to Faith Communities at The Conversation Project.

• Leave with your own copy of The Hello Game and Conversation Starter Kit

We hope you will join us!
