Platform: Leave the Earth, Better

April 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Sandy Gibson, co-founder of Better Place Forests, will discuss how to think about your legacy, your loved ones, and the environment as you plan end-of-life options. There are three moments your loved ones won’t forget about you: the moment you die, your funeral, and the image of your final resting place. We’ll discuss why it’s important to plan ahead to make those moments better for the people they would impact the most—the people who love you.

This platform will be in person at the meetinghouse and on Zoom. The Zoom link will be in the Weekly Announcements email and may be obtained by emailing admin@ethicalfocus.org.

Mindfulness at Platform: You are welcome to join us on the last Sunday of every month for Mindfulness at Platform, where we will create a space to find our breath. Breath work is one path to a more calm, mindful state of awareness, improving our well-being and our thinking. Led by Silvia Acosta, sessions are 10:40 to 10:55 am at the meetinghouse and on Zoom.

Research shows breath work can “alter the structure and function of the brain to improve the quality of thought, feeling and concern for others,” according to the Krame Center for Contemplative Studies and Mindful Living at Ramapo College.

Presentation on funerals: Shortly after this platform, following a light lunch, you’re invited to a talk by Gerald First of Funeral Consumers Alliance of Northern New Jersey.
