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…
Sally Shannon, MA, presenting “So, You’ve Chosen Cremation: How to Consciously Choose, Plan & Honor.”
We will use images and discussion to look at the cremation process, making an initial choice of cremation (including environmental impact and psycho-social-spiritual considerations), choosing a crematory, ritual and witnessing. And we will talk about cremation in other cultures. Using small group, individual or dyad work, you will explore individual and community values and beliefs. And you will walk away with a personal action item.
Sally Shannon completed her Masters Degree Thesis on “Dying, Loss and Grief” in 1983. She has been a “Diva of Death” since then, studying with Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Raymond Moody, and Stephen Levine. A certified Home Funeral Guide, she also consults with individuals and families preparing their end of life plans. “There are no wrong choices. There are only hasty or unconscious choices that we regret.” Her work with clients is about discovering their own truth and making powerful choices.
