Transitions

The Wheeler Centre

Event Date: 
26 March 2018
Author / Presenters: 
Hilary Harper, Sarah Winch, Efterpi Soropos, and Denise Love

In the first event in our Dead Calm series, we’ll delve into the detail of the process of dying. Our panel of experts are people who witness, ease or facilitate the transition from life to death in a professional capacity.

They’ll discuss definitions of death, the best environments for death and how medical practitioners can work with spiritual and religious people to make deaths as peaceful as possible.

When is the moment of death? Is it about the body, or consciousness? Is death improving in Australia today? And how might we start thinking differently about death – from the way we plan for death to the language we use around dying?

Metropolis Books will be our bookseller at this event.
