Death:OK (Let’s Talk About It) is a day of inspiration, information, and connection taking place October 17, 2015 on the campus of Reed College in Portland, Oregon. As part of an ongoing series profiling our presenters, we’re pleased to introduce you to…
Lily Myers Kaplan, presenting “Two Rare Birds~A Legacy of Love: Transforming Loss Stories into Legacy Stories.”
In this presentation and mini-workshop Lily will share stories from Two Rare Birds as an induction for small group storytelling. Using a process called Stepping Stones, participants will discover their own legacies born of loss and build a path toward a new story.
