Celebrating Life by Honoring our Dead

Date(s) - Tuesday, October 27, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:15 pm


An online workshop for individuals and families Led by Johanna Munson and Kathryn Jay

Join us to explore how those who have died have affected our life. How can remembering them help us open up to talk about death? What ways have we learned to cope with the idea of death, and how can we create an affirmative approach?

The workshop begins with choosing a person or an animal to honor, then bringing in memories that call that person close. We’ll honor them in the second session by exhibiting creative works made during the intervening week– sculpture, collage, poetry, music- anything goes! Images from this session will be recorded and compiled into a video to be shown to a wider audience.

In the third session we’ll turn to how to approach the topic of our own death, and reflect on how we’d like to be remembered. The 4th week we’ll share our creations in a compilation video, along with the impact of the workshop. All are invited to join in that session.

This online workshop takes place on Zoom in four sessions, 10/6, 10/13, 10/20, and 10/27 (all Tuesdays) from 7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. Please commit to participating in all four sessions. There is a registration fee of $20 per household, and proceeds go to Cedars UU Church. Registration is limited to 30 participants. You can register by clicking this link:
