Join us as Dr. Andrea Deerheart and Melissa Diaz weave their way on a literary journey that explores various cultural and historical views on death from around the world. Through our imaginations, into our subconscious, deep into our own hearts, let us wander to ponder, to share, to explore, and to reflect on this illuminating mystery. Together we will venture into our individual and collective psyche to explore the captivating and sacred, universal ritual of DEATH.
We will be reading Advice for Future Corpses (and Those Who Love Them): A Practical Perspective on Death and Dying written by Sallie Tisdale.
"Former NEA fellow and Pushcart Prize-winning writer Sallie Tisdale offers a lyrical, thought-provoking, yet practical perspective on death and dying in Advice for Future Corpses (and Those Who Love Them). Informed by her many years working as a nurse, with more than a decade in palliative care, Tisdale provides a frank, direct, and compassionate meditation on the inevitable."
Tisdale explores all the painful, graceful, terrifying, confusing, absurd, and even lighthearted experiences that accompany the work of dying and death.
