CONFERENCE FOCUS & THEMES

Questions that will be addressed during the event will include:
  • How can we better understand aging and dying?
  • How can contemplative practices like mindfulness help us care for ourselves in any situation?
  • What systems of care and community are emerging that can offer us holistic approaches to aging and dying?
 
Keynote presentations, panel discussions, and workshops will address three themes:
  • Contemplative Caring for Self & Other – this theme will address how contemplative approaches to clinical practice, modalities and outcomes address experiences of aging and end of life - for individuals as well as their families and caregivers
  • Structuring Systems of Care – here we will consider age collectively – through healthcare institutions and intentional communities, as well as how ethics and insurance may influence decisions, quality of life, and wholeness
  • Creative Supports for Living & Dying – the arts, music, and embodiment practices have a unique role in bringing support, meaning, and sometimes closure, to diverse and challenging life experiences.
