In this workshop we will provide a rich conversation with tools for participants to write a Death Plan for themselves or for their loved ones. A Death Plan fills in the gaps of information not covered by a living will, last will and testament, Advance Care Directive or funeral plan. We will walk you through the easy to follow format of creating an inclusive document that is designed to tie those plans together in a cohesive way for medical teams, families and loved ones to follow with ease.

Presented by Ashley Benem, Death Midwife, Minister, LMP, the owner of A Sacred Passing: Death Midwifery Service in Bellingham Washington, and the creator of the Art of Death Exhibition and Conference. Ashley has served on several committees and action groups to support change in Palliative and End of Life Care practice, is one of the organizers for her local Death Café, and offers training in Death Midwifery Care. She worked on an ambulance for nearly 15 years before becoming a massage therapist specializing in pregnancy massage and as a Birth Doula focused on empowering the birth experience for families.
