Conscious relating with self, land, and others.
End of Life Planning & Paperwork Workshop

Five Week Workshop Series with Lee Warren

Conscious Living, Conscious Dying
Preparing for the End of Life

5-Week Online Workshop
   November 12, 19
   December 3, 10, 17

Contemplate important end-of-life questions and prepare the necessary documents in a supportive group process.

Description

Join me for this sacred journey to contemplate end-of-life intentions and prepare the appropriate documents. Whether for yourself or for a loved one, intentionally preparing for death honors life and greatly increases the likelihood of having a good death.

Creating clear end-of-life paperwork is important for all stages of life and health. Written documents help loved ones know what to expect, guide our own inner and outer processes and, when the time comes, allow us to turn our attention to the mystery and magic inherent in the dying process. As we make the time and space to contemplate important end-of-life questions, we become more comfortable considering, discussing, and deciding on all aspects of the ideal journey.

During our five weeks together, you will receive an overview of the entire spectrum of end-of-life paperwork, focus extensively on end-of-life directives, dive into after-death options, and come away with a profoundly expanded understanding of end-of-life options. You will have the opportunity to complete the Five Wishes document, which is an internationally renowned and recognized advanced care directive often described as a “living will with a heart and soul.” You will also be able to complete the Dementia Directive, the Medical Orders for Scope of Treatment (MOST) and Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) forms, after-death forms of various kinds, and a checklist for further actions.

Expect expert information, real-life examples, one-on-one and group discussions, opportunities for contemplation, resources galore, and easy discussions, as well as active encouragement for next steps. Working in a group context allows for a depth of sharing that is not accessible in an individual process. The supportive group atmosphere offers an exchange of ideas, experiences, stories, and support as you work through your process. And you may join in a movement that ultimately builds death-literate and death-positive communities.

For Information & Registration:

This workshop is now being offered through the School of Integrated Living (SOIL) which is the non-profit educational organization at Earthaven Ecovillage.

Over a two-year period, from 2016 to 2018, our community (Earthaven Ecovillage) had five deaths. All five folks received home funerals and home burials and several of them were cared for and died at home. The journey for us was profound on so many levels. This workshop emerged through our own experience, help from our mentors, wisdom from the dying, and a synthesis of the celebrations and challenges. We offer our integrated village experience as a guide for folks to replicate a similarly conscious and positive end-of-life process.

    "Lee is an experienced and truly competent guide in the vast landscapes of end of life plans. Her thoughtful pacing helps us navigate the territory of decisions to make, who to involve, emotions and choices. Being supported in preparing for this rite of passage by creating our death care team settles a lot in me. I highly recommend. Everyone involved will benefit."

    Re: Thriving in Community Workshop

    "This course covers the vital social-emotional aspects of community that just isn't talked about openly enough. I so appreciated Lee's candid sharing of her own experience and warm encouragement of our own self-reflection. I truly believe that if more folks did the kind of personal and interpersonal work Lee outlines in this course, more communities would thrive!"

  • Keary Jenkins

    Executive Vice President & Wellness Coordinator

    "When I heard Lee say, "functional teams demonstrate communication, transparency, and trust," in her Relational Leadership workshop, it changed everything for me. I'm being that change in my workplace and finding others who resonate with that change. It is having impact with everyone in the entire organization, including the CEO. Employees who felt powerless in the past are now starting to light up. Our work ecology is changing and the transformation is beyond powerful."
