Own Your Obituary
Facilitated by Amy-Lyles Wilson, Story Coach and Spiritual Director, Alive’s Grief Center is hosting an Own Your Obituary writing workshop on March 11 from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Even if what we write won’t be used as our official death notice to the world, it can help us identify what’s important in the here and now. This workshop is not about critique or comparison; it’s about honoring our lives in the language we choose. Bring your favorite journal and writing instrument. Refreshments will be provided.
