An Evening With...
SOLD OUT. Join our waitlist.
When we receive a fatal diagnosis, or reach extreme old age, we must face the finality of our own impending death.  Coping with that harsh reality is one of the great challenges we face as human beings.  We can respond in ways that make the experience even more difficult.  Or we can choose a path that leads to finding greater meaning and purpose to our life even as it comes to a close.  In tonight’s conversation we will explore these different ways of coping with death, and how they can be used throughout our lifetimes to create a deeper, richer and more authentic experience of our life’s journey, no matter how long it may last.

Mary Ann Melpolder has had a life-long interest in death, bereavement, and the survival of consciousness.  She holds Master's degrees in Thanatology from Hood College and in American Studies with a focus on warfare from the University of Maryland.  She served for two years as a hospice volunteer with Montgomery Hospice working with the dying and their families.  She is a member of the Association for Death, Education, and Counseling, and the International Association of Near-Death Studies.
