A Good Life, A Good Death: The Art of Life Stories

May 16, 2018 @ 6:30 pm  —  May 16, 2018 @ 8:00pm

A Good Life, A Good Death
March – May
Portsmouth Public Library

You’ve made a good life. Now plan for a good death! In cooperation with Hospice Help Foundation, a nonprofit providing financial assistance to hospice patients, and the Portsmouth Regional Hospital, the Portsmouth Public Library will host a workshop series titled A Good Life, A Good Death in March, April and May. One Wednesday per month, at 6:30 PM, these programs will help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and lay the groundwork for a good death.

Part 3: The Art of Life Stories
Wednesday May 16, 6:30 – 8 PM
Presented by Cynthia Tokos

Cynthia creates stories around the beauty of everyday people for non-profits, businesses and individuals. Her work reflects the dignity and strength of ‘heroes’ (read: ‘ordinary people’) who regularly save the day. In this hands on workshop, Cynthia will help you capture the essence of your Life Story – the gifts you bring to this world. Participants will leave with a letter, both written and using art materials if they choose, which they can gift to themselves or another as part of their legacy.

And don’t miss…
