Learn how to approach “a good death”—for yourself and for others.

What is a “Good Death”? What guides decisions—our own and those of our loved ones, community, and clients—about how to have or support a “Good Death”? This course explores three times—preparing for death, the time of death, and after death—from the perspectives of Tibetan Buddhist religion and contemporary End of Life spiritual care. The class will consider cultural awareness and sensitivity, offer instruction in knowledge and praxis of caring for the dying and the bereaved, and will include a facilitated end of life planning process. What a good death looks like, and under what conditions it could be possible, will be found to be diverse and dynamic. The course is open to all.
