When is it time to say to a doctor, “Let my loved one go?”
This will be the subject of a free teleconference on Wednesday, November 13, with award-winning science writer and meditation practitioner Katy Butler. Sponsored by the Metta Institute, the teleconference promises “an honest examination of the medical profession’s handling of end-of-life care,” inspired by Butler’s deeply personal new memoir about her own parents’ passage, Knocking on Heaven’s Door: The Path to a Better Way of Death.
While the teleconference with Katy Butler is free, participants must register ahead of time and may do so here. If those registered cannot participate live (3:00 – 4:00pm EST), they will receive a link afterward to download a podcast of the conversation.
