Taking the Fear Out of Death: Join Us for Our Monthly “Death Talk” Live Q&A Discussion | Doulagivers Institute

Apr 25, 2023

Death is an inevitable part of life but discussions about death and dying can often feel taboo. That’s why we’re hosting a monthly “Death Talk” Q&A Discussion, aimed at creating a safe space to openly talk about this difficult subject. Hosted by Doulagivers Institute and Suzanne B. O’Brien RN, this webinar will help you learn how to approach the subject of death in a constructive and meaningful way. We’ll explore and answer questions about all aspects of end of life so that we can come together to have an honest and uplifting conversation about death. Join us for Death Talk and gain the knowledge you need to face this misunderstood and unnecessarily feared subject with acceptance and understanding. 


Death can be difficult to talk about for many people, but it doesn’t have to be. Death Talk is an informative, compassionate, and supportive monthly Q&A Discussion hosted by Doulagivers Institute and Suzanne B. O’Brien RN to help allay your fears surrounding death and offer a safe environment to learn the truth about it. It’s designed to help you understand death not as something to fear, but rather something that we can accept as a natural part of life. Death Talk provides an open forum to discuss death and dying from an educational and professional perspective. We’ll cover topics such as funeral rituals, estate planning, and end-of-life care so that you can feel empowered and informed about these subjects. Join us for our live discussion series and take one step closer to becoming death-positive and achieving peace of mind about how you and your loved ones can prepare for this inevitable chapter of your lives.

Exploring the subject of death and dying can be a daunting prospect, and this new monthly Q&A provides an opportunity to do just that. Through our Death Talk Live Q&A Discussion, individuals can come together in a safe and supportive space to learn about death and dying openly and transparently. This unique platform has been created to normalize the conversation surrounding mortality; encouraging individuals to embrace the end-of-life journey by embracing death positivity. Here all questions are welcomed, whether they are personal experiences or general inquiries into the unknown; no matter your feelings towards death, this is a place where you can feel encouraged and supported as you explore it further.


Death Talk was created to help people find answers to questions such as: 

  1. What are the most common end-of-life concerns that people have?
  1. How can I create a positive end of life experience for my loved one?
  1. What estate planning documents should I consider preparing?
  1. How do health care decisions get made at the end of life?
  1. How can I help someone who is grieving a loss?

Don’t be afraid to ask questions, express your opinion, or just listen in on the discussion. Together we can work towards developing a healthier relationship with death and dying. Those who participate in this Q&A will also have access to valuable resources that can make the end-of-life journey better for both patients and family caregivers, as well as walk away with a clearer understanding of what they need to prepare for and learn more about in order to handle it as well as possible.

Our goal is to foster an honest conversation about this natural part of life and help provide participants with the knowledge and resources they need to make informed decisions. By acknowledging death instead of avoiding it, we learn to live in the present moment. Ultimately, learning about death can help us live better by giving us perspective on what really matters in life. When we come to terms with death, we can turn our fear into a source of strength and courage. When we acknowledge death and make peace with it, we live each day with more intention. It’s time we all become more comfortable talking about death in order to better understand this 100% guaranteed part of life and learn how to take care of each other in our greatest time of need.
