Author Event: Creative Ways to be with the Dying

With all the recent celebrity deaths (not to mention the four teens who died in Santa Fe; our hearts go out to their families), the subject of dying seems to be on everyone’s mind lately.

The message of author Jillian Brasch’s book, The Last Gifts: Creative Ways to be with the Dying, is simply this: caring for a dying person is awe-inspiring, not depressing.

If you’d like to learn how this can be, head over to Bookworks tonight (Tuesday, June 30, 2009) at 7:00pm to meet the author and hear how she, an occupational therapist and hospice worker, learned to “get past the physical unpleasantness” of working with the terminally ill in order to “see the blossoming of a soul as it sheds its earthly limitations.” We should all be so lucky as to be able to characterize death like this. Should be an enlightening event.

Bookworks is located in the north valley at 4022 Rio Grande NW, Albuquerque.
