Workshop Series Explores Living and Dying in Tucson

| By Jodi Horton

The Tucson Botanical Gardens and Casa de la Luz Hospice have partnered together to present a six-week workshop series featuring the expertise of end-of-life professionals in a unique educational experience in the peaceful environment of the botanical gardens.

A Natural Journey: Living and Dying in the Old Pueblo will use story-telling, rituals, artistic expression, music, and lecture to help participants explore end-of-life perspectives from many cultures in the Tucson community. Special attention will be given to planning and preparation for the end of life with focus on advanced directives, ethical and value concerns and issues of legacy and memory. Participants will walk away with new perspective and tools to live life to the end.

This workshop series is supported by the Shaaron Kent Endowment Fund held at the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona. There is no fee to attend, but space is limited. The workshops begin on Tuesday, March 29 and are every Tuesday from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. To sign up, call Sally with the Casa de la Luz bereavement department at (520) 544-9890. Seats are quickly filling up so don’t delay on your registration. To view each workshop topic, visit our Education page.
