Death is a frightening, confusing, and even unmentionable topic for many of us. Yet, it doesn’t have to be.

Now in this profoundly enlightening online lecture, David Kessler, co-author with Elisabeth Kübler Ross of two best-selling books and now one of the world’s most renowned experts on grief and loss, helps you and your loved ones face life and death with peace, dignity, and courage. Whether you’ve always been afraid of death, know someone who is dying, are struggling with grief from losing someone in your life, or are facing your own mortality, David’s insight will bring you hope, comfort, and love to life's final chapter.

In particular, David will discuss:
• How to come to terms with death and rise above fears about it;
• How to discuss end of life issues with family, friends, physicians, and hospital staff;
• Why birth is not a beginning and death is not an ending;
• How to help others meet the needs of the dying;
• Overcoming barriers to hospice;
• And, much more.

David also shares hopeful and heartfelt stories about what happens when we die.

“David Kessler is my friend and student. He carries on my work, and his book will help.”

“I so remember David Kessler in the old days of The Hayride, a support group I started. His very presence with those approaching death was like being enveloped in a safe, cozy space. No harm could come to you if David was around. In fact, I recently asked him to be there when it is my time to go.”
— Louise L. Hay
