The Before I Die NM Festival fosters reflection about how we address death and dying. It won't kill you to talk about it. With time and space to honestly discuss end-of-life issues, we can plan ahead and take action to address our 100% mortality rate. We're putting the "fun" in funeral planning! Today's Before I Die NM Festival afternoon events include a Mortuary Mall for people to inspect and learn about funeral and cremation products and services, a panel of death doulas, and a workshop on preparing advance medical directives. There will also be a Before I Die symposium in the morning held by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of New Mexico Continuing Education Building, with speakers on death and dying, pet loss, and Gail Rubin, The Doyenne of Death®, presenting "The Funeral Director on Film." Attendees can enter a drawing to win valuable prizes such as burial plots, cremation niches, or a planning organizer. Visit www.BeforeIDieNM.com to see the full schedule online.
