Here’s what to expect:
Some of us don’t plan on living forever. But what do we know about dying? Rev. Stephen Winton-Henry, hospice chaplain-grief educator and Cynthia Winton-Henry, cofounder of InterPlay are dying to live. Good at helping people get into and out of their bodies, in the Dying to Live Tour and Cabaret they share lessons and welcome wisdom around the biggest dance we do: Live and Die. Using the old ways of music, stories, and dance we’ll Toast one another, write our names in the book of life and touch on the four key body wisdoms of the Dying to Live Cabaret.
- Death role at the sacred center of life
- Death is not a solo dance
- Death requires a band of angels
- We have an obligation to die well
