Upcoming events with Gail Rubin, CT
Gail Rubin, CT, is an unconventional death educator who’s available for speaking engagements. She’ll “knock ‘em dead” with her enthusiastic approach to getting the conversation started on life and death issues using humor and funny films.
The objective of the Death Cafe is “To increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” It’s all about an interesting, unstructured conversation – open and free-flowing with no specific agenda. Relax over some coffee or tea, some cake or cookies, and join in a group discussion to talk about what’s on your mind about mortality issues. Refreshments are provided at these free events. Gail is one of the first people to hold a Death Cafe in the United States.
Sunday, June 30, 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. — Albuquerque Death Cafe at Manzano del Sol Village, 5201 Roma NE, Fifth Floor Lounge. More information here.
With a 100% chance of mortality, the Bakersfield “Before I Die” Festival, hosted by Greenlawn Cemetery and Memorial Park, fosters reflection about how we address death and dying. By providing space and opportunities to openly discuss end-of-life issues and learn from experts, we can improve the outcome of the actions we take to prepare for our mortality. All Festival events are free and open to the public. More information here.
