Conversations on Living & Dying

ABOUT THIS COURSE

Death is inevitable and what we do in our lives will determine how well the end of that life goes.

When you’re on your deathbed, what will be the one thing you wish for? For many people, it’s a good conversation. With loved ones close to them and still living in their lives, they get closure with how life was really lived before leaving this world.

In this course, we explore:

  • What does it mean to live?
  • What are the right words we should use when talking with someone who is dying?
  • Death is not always morbid
  • How death can be a time of unexpected joy and reconciliation

  1. How It All Began
  2. Life and Ageing
  3. Death is not Morbid
