Pushing Up Daisies Workshop

About this Event

70% of deaths are expected. Are you prepared? What do you want when you die? Let's start the conversation no one is having.

In this thought-provoking, intimate workshop you will develop a toolkit to create an end-of-life plan that matches your budget and your values.

We explore:

• What is death?

• How long will I live?

• What will I die of?

• Where will I die?

• Do I need a funeral director?

• Bury or burn or ...?

• What's important to me?

• How to communicate my wishes?

• Can I grow with grief?

Date: Saturday 8th February 2020

Time: 8:30am arrival for 9am start and 1:30pm finish (includes provided light lunch)

Location: Riverdell Spiritual Centre (in the Sanctuary)

Cost: $65 per person (includes provided light lunch)

Your facilitator, Abby Buckley...

Abby is a Celebrant, Social Ecologist and Bush Adventure Therapy Leader who finds guidance and inspiration from nature on how to positively embrace death in our everyday lives so we feel connected, empowered and enlivened. Death Cafes, Before I Die Walls, Death Over Dinner and Dying To Know Days are some of the conversation-starting community events she has facilitated in Gawler over the last 5 years along with being an event speaker on topics such as Natural Burial. Her network and knowledge of the industry developed during her year at Adelaide Cemeteries Authority. She is so passionate about this topic that she is currently doing social research for her PhD thesis and creates personalised, values-based ceremonies and rituals for clients of her celebrancy business … making moments that matter.

Some kind words previous workshop participants have shared include:

"Death is not an easy topic to discuss but Abby made each and everyone of us feel comfortable, enabling us to talk openly and honestly."

“Loved how you started the workshop as it got us all thinking and talking.”

“Thank you for a professional, entertaining and informative workshop. Talking about Death and Dying is clearly a topic that you are comfortable talking with and about to others. Your knowledge, confidence, experiences, understanding and compassion were clearly demonstrated, enabling us to express our thoughts, feelings and experiences.

“Attending the workshop has created much interesting discussion with my family and also work colleagues.”

“Attending the workshop was time very well spent. Much good practical advice associated with death, bereavement and funeral planning was dispensed. Many myths associated with the funeral industry were dispelled.”
