Behind the Red Tape, Part TWO:  Legacy, Disposition, & Ceremony Planning

An IOA / ReImagine Event

Last month, IOA was pleased to participate in ReImagine’s worldwide virtual summer festival. Per participant feedback from the June ReImagine sessions, our IOA panel-driven event proved to be very popular—so we are bringing back the speakers to dig deeper into their topics, and with more Q & A.  There’s never enough time and space to discuss life, loss, and love, it seems.  You need not have attended the first session to derive value from this second one.

ReImagine End of Life is a community-wide exploration of death and celebration of life through creativity and conversation.  Drawing on the arts, spirituality, healthcare, and design, ReImagine sparks experiences which break down taboos and bring diverse communities together in wonder, preparation and remembrance.

How do you best prepare for death? It depends….If you are a planner by nature, or out of personal or professional necessity, it’s essential to have the language, the resources, & the ability to reflect on personal culture & values—all of which are vital components for end-of-life preparation. With that said, end-of-life matters are often neither easy nor welcomed topics of conversation. This panel of compassionate & dedicated experts will, once again, provide mindful and practical tools for helping you consider and develop an end-of-life plan. There will be ample time for questions.
