demystifying death tour 2023
Tour places and times below
For Demystifying Death Week this year Pushing Up The Daisies is arranging a “demystifying death tour” around Scotland. Authors Lin Carruthers and Kate Clark will be available to talk about their new book – Slow Down When Someone Dies and sell signed copies.
The book is a call to everyone, and particularly carers, to take time during the days after someone’s last breath to tend to their own longer term wellbeing. It contains inspiration to help people consider what’s right for them and all the practical information for them to be able to do what’s right for them when a significant person steps out of their life in a physical way.
Kate and Lin will also host informal information and discussion sessions over a cuppa and cake around the options people have when someone dies – the legalities and the practicalities. All questions welcome.
