When we are faced with serious illness in ourselves or a loved one, the possibility of death and dying can become more real for all of us.
At The Still Place we have started a year long dedication to gathering monthly to discuss, study, discover, explore and wonder about finding a more thoughtful, peaceful death for ourselves and those we care for as family, caregivers and health care professionals.
Join us on June 14th at 6:30 PM at The Still Place as we discuss the impact of serious illness on teens and their friends and families as we reflect on the novel and movie, The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green.
Hazel Grace Lancaster , a 16-year-old cancer patient, meets and falls in love with Gus Waters, a similarly afflicted teen from her cancer support group. Hazel feels that Gus really understands her. They both share the same acerbic wit and a love of books, especially Grace’s touchstone, “An Imperial Affliction” by Peter Van Houten. When Gus scores an invitation to meet the reclusive author, he and Hazel embark on the adventure of their brief lives.
We welcome anyone from any path to sit in safety and reflect and share. Please note this is not intended to be grief or bereavement counseling.
Light refreshments will be served.
