Dying to Know Day 8th August 2022

Monday 8th August is the National Dying to Know Day.

“An annual campaign that empowers Australians at all stages of life to live and die well.”

You can find lots of amazing events and gatherings on their 2022 events page, some from the Groundswell Project Australia and others from individuals, organisations and communities around Australia. Events will be online and in person. Check out their Facebook page.

I will be hosting two events so I hope you can join me!


Monday 8th August 2022 7-8.30pm AEST  Free to participate. Click here for more information and to register.

Mourning and Celebration Circle—using guided practices from the mindfulness, Ongo: Everyday Nonviolence and Celebrating This Precious Life programs, we will come together to share our mourning and celebration.

Mourning the loss of person, pet, a job, financial security, concern for the planet, a way of life, a state of being—mourning can be healthy and form the basis of a strong community. The circles are not therapy although they are therapeutic—they are surprisingly uplifting and energising.

Helena from Portugal wrote, “I’m so grateful for having had the opportunity to experience such a space, so distinct from how our society normally deals with, or actually ignores, these still taboo topics of death and grief.”
