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 events feature "Jewish Burial is Green Burial," a three-hour session with a discussion of green burial issues, a demonstration of the Jewish tahara ritual of washing and dressing a body, and a discussion about the spirits of the deceased. At 1:00 p.m. The Guild Cinema will show THE PRINCESS BRIDE, famous for the line, "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." This classic comedy reminds us to plan ahead. 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.
