Daylong Teaching: The Tangled Garden

November 17, 2012 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Saturday, Nov. 17th (9am-3pm) The Tangled Garden

A good death is everyone’s right, but the idea makes no sense in a culture that doesn’t believe in dying at all: this is the dilemma for palliative patients and their families, and for those working in a health care system where dying is the end, not the fulfillment, of health. The time is upon us, after several decades of pain and symptom management, to imagine anew what dying asks of us all, and what a dying person deserves from us. This workshop is a deep meditation on how dying can be learned, and on what the care of dying people should have at its root.
