The Last Gifts: Creative Ways To Be With the Dying Workshop

I don’t believe people are afraid of death. What they are afraid of is the incompleteness of their lives.
–Ted Rosenthal

When you spend time with someone who is dying, you learn immeasurably about yourself. In this popular, entertaining workshop Jillian prepares you to creatively engage with the dying and help them meet their final goals, while giving you an emotional map of how to be truly helpful. Whether you know someone who is dying or not, learn ways to be more present and comfortable, listen more fully, and get in touch with your own values. If you think being with someone who is dying is depressing, you’re in for a surprise. It is awe-inspiring!
