Grief/Death Education, and Speaking Engagements

Death is a challenge. It tells us not to waste time…

It tells us to tell each other right now that we love each other. 

~ Leo Buscaglia

In keynote and conference presentations, teleseminars,

retreats and workshops, I empower people to learn the

lessons that grief and death teach us.

Participants state that I am an inspiring, passionate and engaging speaker who is gifted at discussing very intimate, private topics in a manner that is safe and educational. While the topics are intense, particularly when discussing death and dying, and grief and loss, the lessons are uplifting even when learning about environmental grief and ecological grief.

Presentation topics include, but are not limited to the following:

Everything You Wanted to Know About Death but Were Afraid to Ask

Paperwork at the End of Life

Managing Grief and Loss in the Hospital*

Living with Grief and Loss During a Pandemic*

Dying with Dignity*

Communication at the End of Life*

Caregiver Grief and Guilt

Environmental Grief: Hope and Healing

Ecological Grief and Anxiety

Coping with Climate Grief and Climate Change Deniers

Caring and Communicating to Dying Children*

Public Events are on hold until further notice, but please do check back often because I will be offering webinars soon.
