The Art of Dying is the 5th installment of a conference that brings together important innovators, researchers and authors in the fields of death and dying, including practitioners in the areas of palliative and hospice care. Many are trained in modern medicine and work directly with the dying or bereaved. Others speak from the wisdom of traditional teachings, while still others share with us their own deeply personal accounts.
This conference presents a unique opportunity for all those seeking to better understand, acknowledge and ultimately embrace their own mortality, their fears of non-existence, and their relationship to their own death.
The views, opinions and positions expressed by these authors and blogs are theirs and do not necessarily represent that of the Bioethics Research Library and Kennedy Institute of Ethics or Georgetown University.
