NOTE: This program has been rescheduled from March 16, 2023.
Do you want to face mortality with less fear and more curiosity, less euphemism and more reality, less conformity and more creativity?
Facilitated by Rev. Karen G. Johnston, Date with Death Club is a non-dogmatic opportunity to explore mortality in community through connection, reflection, and conversation.
Come to one, some, or all of the monthly sessions. Participation in each session is first come, first served.
Death with Dignity: Medical Aid in Dying: What does death with dignity mean? We’ll explore the ins and outs of Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD), including its legal status in the United States and what it means. We’ll have special guests, Dr. Robin Plumer & Elizabeth Staunton of Compassionate Endings NJ present and answer questions. We’ll also review other legal, ethical ways to hasten death, being sure to explore concerns about ableism that are a part of this landscape.
Note: Date with Death Club is NOT a bereavement group. For more information, visit the Date with Death Club website: datewithdeathclub.com, or visit the Date with Death Club Facebook page.
