Education

Death can be hard to talk about, but we can’t prepare ourselves or those we love if we aren’t brave enough to break the silence. Let us help you start the conversation.

We provide community education on advance care planning, grief, legacy building, palliative care, and end-of-life care options.

  • Say it Now!+

    Alive’s Say It Now program encourages us to tell the important people in our lives how we feel, now. Sharing your thoughts today can bring joy, resolve a conflict or make someone feel appreciated.

    We’ve all thought, “Why didn’t I just tell them, and now it’s too late.” In grief, people often express regret for having left something unsaid in their relationship with the person who died.

    Our team helps community members Say It Now with encouragement, postcards and more at events and custom workshops. Contact us for more information.

  • Culture and Mourning+

    This free, educational series explores how different cultures and faiths support the universal experiences of death and mourning in their own unique ways. In a world that would rather gloss over grief, we all need time and space for healing and its power to change lives.

  • Advance Care Planning+

    Who would have thought a simple form and conversation might be the most meaningful gift you could give your loved ones and yourself? During this interactive workshop, our facilitators will walk you through filling out advance care directive forms and explore how to talk about these topics with loved ones.

    Offered virtually or in-person.

  • Grief Support 101+

    In a fast-paced, quick-fix world, how do you truly show up for someone who is hurting? What do the bereaved really need? This interactive presentation explores the principles of companioning and highlights a new spin on the way we view grief support.

    Offered virtually or in-person.

  • Hospice 101+

    Offered virtually or in-person.
