In this podcast we meet Caroline Stevens, who will host the film Speaking of Dying Friday April 15, 6 pm at WPCC. This event is the first of a three part series which also includes the End-of-Life: Respecting Choice Conference this weekend and the End of Life Planning Workshops which Stevens will lead starting April 28 at Bainbridge Island’s Waterfront Park Community Center.
April 15, 6-7:30 p.m. WPCC; $5 at the door.
Produced locally by Trudy James, Speaking of Dying captures the importance of individuals and groups speaking openly about all aspects of the dying process. For a preview of the film go to http://speakingofdying.com/.
“This film is a good first step to begin the conversation about end of life. It is a very moving film with people actually talking about and anticipating their own death. It creates an opening in a person to verbalize their own fears and desires, to begin to visualize the kind of death they want or don’t want. It can be used to stimulate a conversation with one’s spouse, parent, child, or friend.” —Caroline Stevens

“When I met Trudy James and learned about her work, I knew immediately that I wanted to do what she does. As I’ve become trained and had more time to think about it, I have understood that it is directly connected to meeting so many people and families in my work who were unprepared to face death.”
