Talking about Dying

What do we think about when we think of dying? When we think about our own dying, what do we want most? This conversation provides an opportunity for participants to reflect on what stories and influences shape their thinking about death and dying and to hear perspectives and ideas from fellow community members. Facilitators of Talking about Dying programs are trained professionals working in the fields of chaplaincy, counseling, gerontology, facilitation, and hospice care around Oregon.

Thanks to the generous support of WRG Foundation Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation, in 2017, Oregon Humanities will offer Talking about Dying programs to communities throughout the state at no cost to hosts or participants. Because of this funding, requests for Talking about Dying programs will be separate from the Conversation Project through the 2017 calendar year. Read more about how to apply.
