Wednesday, August 16, 2:45 to 3:45 p.m. — New Mexico Conference on Aging presentation, “Downsize and Organize for a Better Life (and Death).” You don’t have to be old or dying to downsize. When living in the same place for decades, stuff accumulates. Attachment to objects which no longer serve us become energy-draining clutter. Learn how to let go, pare down, and prepare your vital end-of-life information. You’ll feel lighter, energized and liberated! Register for the conference through this webpage.

Mark your calendar for the inaugural “Before I Die” ABQ festival, October 20-25, 2017. “Before I Die” festivals are part of a growing social movement to foster reflection about how we as individuals and as a society manage death and dying. By providing space and opportunities to openly discuss end-of-life issues, we can improve the percentage of those who plan ahead and take actions to address our mortality. More information here.
