Double Header: When Breath Becomes Air and The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning
Living Well, Dying Well Book Discussion
Tuesday, January 21, 2020, 5:15-6:45 pm
Paul Kalanithi’s moving memoir draws from his experience as an expert in both neurosurgery and literature, both practices that allowed him to look at the full range of human experience and what it means to for life to have meaning. Many people have entered into “the talk” with friends and family after reading this powerful work. Join us to reflect on what Kalanithi’s writing spoke to you.
And, for something a bit lighter…..A new year, a new you. Each year, many of us resolve to pare down and live with less stuff. Join friends old and new to discuss another way to spark joy: the Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning. This could be the year you find peace with your things.

A Special Event with Compassion & Choices

Hereafter Partners is pleased to promote an event by Compassion and Choices, the national not-for-profit organization dedicated improving end of life care, expanding options, and empowering everyone in their end of life planning.
In August 2019, New Jersey became the ninth jurisdiction in the U.S. to allow medical aid in dying for the terminally ill. The signed legislation that ushered in this reality marked the culmination of seven years of on-the-ground organizing by Compassion & Choices and action by volunteer advocates. Join C&C supporters and other interested New Jerseyans to celebrate this victory for those who fear suffering needlessly in our state.
