Art of Dying Conference 6

Spiritual, Scientific and Practical Approaches to Living and Dying

October 13 - 16, 2017 | New York City

Today there is a greater openness to talking about death in new ways, and to considering how our view of death impacts our experience of life. Our culture is in process of awakening to a more conscious view of our own mortality and to post-death possibilities.

How can our own death and the death of those we love be faced with courage and awareness? Does consciousness survive death and, if so what might we expect? How can we best prepare? How can death become much less frightening both for ourselves and our loved ones? This important event brings together innovators in the field of death and dying, in palliative and hospice care.

We invite you to join doctors, nurses, hospice workers, therapists, bereavement counselors, social workers, chaplains and members of the general public to explore a profound, heartfelt and holistic approach to the great matter of life and death.
