Date with Death Club: A Multi-Session Curriculum to Explore Mortality in Community
Developed by Karen G. Johnston, MSW, MDiv
Presented by Rev. Linda Barnes
The Date with Death Club (DwDC) curriculum explores mortality in community. DwDC is an opportunity to learn, share, and deepen your own understanding of what death means to you and how you want to approach death—particularly your own. “This class can help us face death with less fear and more curiosity, with less euphemism and more reality, with less conformity and more creativity.” Join us for one session or all six.
Classes will meet from 1:00 until 3:00 PM on Sunday afternoons.
What this is, is a healthy exploration of death, and the realities of how death is handled in our culture. It is free and open to anyone high school age or older. It is a non-dogmatic exploration of mortality.
What this isn’t is a grief support group. This isn’t bereavement counseling but rather a means to become more comfortable thinking about and talking about death.
