Stephen Garrett – Changing Our Relationship with Death

When you first meet Stephen, you know that you are meeting a man who walks the walk. Disciplined practice, a genuine heart and commitment to life have produced in Stephen the qualities of a compassionate leader: integrity, strength, leadership, kindness and knowledge.

Stephen’s passion for life and death is obvious in his writing, speaking and teaching. His care for each and every person that crosses his path is supported by over two decades of firsthand experience in the fields of social work, adult education, coaching, facilitating and mentoring. He combines a unique blend of spirituality, practicality, humour, and common sense in his approach to serving individuals, families and groups as they walk the mysterious path of dying, death and loss.

The Shuswap Hospice Society is proud to be hosting Stephen for an informal Death Café on Nov 12 (6-9pm) at the Blue Canoe in Salmon Arm. Then on Nov 13, we’ll be offering an all day workshop at the Prestige Harbourfront Resort. Topics will be “Changing our relationship with death” and “Having those difficult conversations”.

Pre-registration is highly recommended; open to the public and the cost is $60 for Nov. 13.
