Gail Rubin Presents New Video Illustrated Talk Online December 9

Dec 5, 2021 | 0 comments

On December 9, pioneering death educator Gail Rubin presents a new video-illustrated talk on Zoom: Not Planning to Die with The Kominsky Method.

As the saying goes, getting old ain’t for sissies. Aging holds challenges for all of us: physical declines, beloved people and pets dying, and unrelenting changes, many not for the better. With video clips from the award-winning Netflix series, The Kominsky Method, laugh and learn about planning ahead for end-of-life, accepting death, and processing grief. The series stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin.

The event is hosted by Santa Fe Doorways, a community coalition interested in nurturing the understanding of dying as a natural process. They offer public education regarding end-of-life care issues. Gail’s talk will take place 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time on Thursday, December 9, 2021.
