A Living Celebration of Life is a chance to rejoice in a person’s life while they are still around to hear your stories and enjoy the gathering of friends and family. It is an opportunity to celebrate a life well-lived and the ways in which our loved ones positively impacted our lives. Traditionally end-of-life has been a family and community affair. Death presented an opportunity for both the dying and their families to share wisdom, leave a lasting legacy, and transition with love and without regret.
In the face of COVID-19, we are living in uncertainty. Our loved ones who fall ill may not be able to be visited in the hospital or the assisted living communities in which they live. If time is short or not guaranteed, why wait to tell your loved ones what they mean to you? The act of gathering around an aging, ill, or dying person can uplift them, giving them the energy to live or a peaceful death knowing how much their life mattered.
In this virtual workshop, we will discuss why a Living Celebration of Life may be appropriate for you or your loved one, and the tools for how to plan one.
