This series will help you understand and articulate your wishes for living purposefully, meaningfully, and joyfully  at every stage of life. 

If you’ve ever thought “I wouldn’t want to be ________ (staring at a wall/alone in a care home/unable to communicate with others…) when I’m old, this series is for you! 

During our 3 sessions, we will explore your aspirations for and apprehensions about aging. The sessions are combined lecture/workshop style so come prepared to get thoughts out of your head and onto paper! 

Join Christa Ovenell, funeral director, end of life doula and community educator in this important series of workshops that are designed to help you explore what LIVING your life means, no matter how old you are now or how old you intend to get!

During our 3 sessions, we will explore your aspirations for and apprehensions about aging. The sessions are combined lecture/workshop style so come prepared to get thoughts out of your head and onto paper!  We will explore 

Session 1: Who decides what a “life worth living” is? (Good news–it’s you!) How can you make your wishes known if circumstances change in your life?

Session 2: What would you do with the rest of your life if you knew you would live to 100? Can you envision a time when life could be too long?

Session 3: Where could you envision living for the rest of your life? What can you take now to align your desires with realistic possibilities?
