Having “The Talk” – It’s Not About Sex Anymore
The Final Transition Conference prepares families to handle difficult end-of-life preparations
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The longer we live, the more likely we are to experience the dying and death of someone close to us. Today when a parent and child have “the Talk” it’s more likely the parent and child are older and the topic is end-of-life.
Discussions about death are no longer off limits. It’s in the news, on TV, in popular literature and part of our lives. It’s okay to be curious. It’s okay now to want to know about dying and even what comes after.
At The Final Transition Conference, produced by Illuminated Partners, LLC, (www.finaltransition.net) discussions of death will be dogma free. Faculty members will probe all of death’s challenges and mysteries.�
