LEARNING LIFE LESSONS FROM PET LOSS

February 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

Our beloved pets are a part of the family, and the grief that follows their deaths can be surprisingly intense. Is it possible to view our love for them and management of their exits as a path to transforming our own relationship to death? As dogs, cats, parakeets, gerbils, lizards, and goldfish have shorter lives, caring for them in both youth and old age can teach us a lot about separation, as well how to find meaning in life.
Join us for a conversation on pet end-of-life planning, pet hospice vs. euthanasia, the power of pet funerals and monuments, and digital life stories and memory books with pet loss expert Lucy Morganstern and human funeral director Amy Cunningham. The talk will be kid friendly with room for family stories.
This program is presented in partnership with Park Slope Parents.

This event is free. Reservations are recommended. To make an online reservation or to find out more information, visit www.green-wood.com/toursevents or call 718-210-3080.
