Hoffman Center continues Art of Dying series


At this month’s Art of Dying program, Claudia Johnson will lead a conversation on Death and Dying.
The event will be held Wed. Jan. 23, 3 to 5 p.m. at Hoffman Center for the Arts, 594 Laneda Ave., Manzanita. Admission is $5.
Every few months the Art of Dying session will hold space for discussions about life, death and dying. Allowing art to inspire us, we will gather round to explore being ‘con-versant’ and in touch with each other regarding our lives and our deaths. What can we learn from being ‘in conversation’ with our friends and neighbors? Who might need to know about our situations at various times? What do others in our community deem important about their deaths or their families well-being or their concerns or plans for their home itself. Who do you call?
What can we gain from and give to one another in a simple yet profound conversation about ourselves, our wishes and our hopes for our lives and our deaths. Various members of the Art of Dying committee will lead these discussions. For your planning purposes, future Conversations on Death and Dying will be held on March 27 and June 26.
