A New Collaboration With the Library
We are excited to announce a new partnership between Mill Valley Village and our amazing Mill Valley Library! Through this collaboration we aim to bring together two very vibrant parts of our community to craft programs of general interest to many of us, young and old. We will touch on aspects of aging, science, and practical matters, among others, presenting programs designed to inspire, provide information, and cut across generations. We owe special thanks to Anji Brenner, City Librarian, for spearheading this joint effort!
And with that background, we are pleased to announce an encore presentation of our first collaboration:
Plan Well, Live Well, Die Well – A Workshop
Saturday, May 18th, 2– 3:30
Creekside Room, Mill Valley Library
For this program we have partnered with Dyalogues, a local communication and educational consulting group with a mission to deeply connect people to what they value most in life. Using an interdisciplinary approach that draws from medicine, psychology, and business, Dyalogues has created entertaining and interactive programs that provide a springboard for important life-changing conversations.
This simple yet powerful 90-minute workshop aims to help individuals, families and communities talk more openly about planning, living and dying well. It is designed to help reduce the fear and uncertainty often associated with navigating end-of-life and helps people connect to what matters most. Dr. Dawn Gross, palliative care physician at UCSF and host of “Dying to Talk”, an inspirational public radio talk show, together with Dyalogues co-founders Nancy Belza and Paul Puccinelli LMFT, will begin by addressing the question, Why Is Talking About Dying So Important When We Are So Busy Living? The presentation is based on the premise that when we consider what matters at the end of life, we quickly learn that we are actually addressing what matters most in life. The workshop will also include an interactive segment, in which participants articulate their vision of the life they wish for now, and at its end.
