Talking About Death Workshop

Despite more media coverage and the spread of Death Cafes in recent years, death is still a taboo topic in our society although we feel free to talk openly about almost anything else. Since the Freudians ‘discovered’ denial, we have learned that, although protective, denial can sometimes be unhelpful and can leave us ill-prepared for facing what is, after all, the one certainty in life!
Although the U3A is devoted to helping people to stay healthy and active, planning for the kind of death you want can be seen as a sign of good mental health.
As it can be a comfort and support to have a place where these conversations can be acceptable and helpful to others, we are hoping to offer a Talking about Death Workshop, although we do have not as yet set a date.
Members be will notified of the final arrangements in the bulletin and on this page of the website.
