A double treat, beginning at 3pm at Shumei (in the round room). Marcella Friel will present a free brief introduction to the well-received LeaveLight workshop, which CEOLP/IFC will once again sponsor this winter. With the tagline, “Rest in Peace Before You Die,” LeaveLight is a “journey through holistic end-of-life planning,” Marcella says. It addresses the nuts and bolts of end-of-life care, including wills and advance directives, but also provides a supportive group space to reflect on your life journey, tie up unfinished emotional business with others, and plan the details of your departure from this earth so that loved ones can navigate your transition with ease. Appropriate for any age. Refreshments served.
Stay following Marcella’s presentation for a very special event, a “song bath” sampling of the gifts of the Crestone Threshold Singers. This is a small group of local women available to sing at the bedsides of those who are dying, and who have sung at open-air cremations. The group is a local chapter of the Threshold Choir, a non-profit national and international organization. With soft, unaccompanied voices blending in exquisite harmony or in unison, they sing simple, soothing, non-religious songs, almost all of which have been written specifically for this type of occasion by Threshold Choir members from around the country. The organization’s motto is “kindness made audible.”
