Williston, ND – The Williston Community Library is hosting “Conversations Beyond Life”, a Leadership Williston project created by graduate Alex Johnson. The program will take place in the library community room on Monday, October 9th and Monday, October 23rd.
The program aims to demystify and destigmatize discussions around death and dying. Each night will feature different speakers from various fields, each offering unique insights and perspectives. Following the talks there will be a panel discussion where you can ask questions and share your thoughts.
The Williston Community Library is proud to once again partner with the Leadership Williston program.
“The Leadership Williston Program is such an asset to the community,” said Library Director Andrea Placher. “We are always excited to see what community project ideas the participants come up with and how we can assist in their efforts. I think the Conversations Beyond Life program is something everyone can benefit from.”
When asked why he choose this as his community project Johnson said “This series is designed to provide a safe, empathetic space for everyone to openly discuss and explore the many aspects, experiences, and emotions associated with death. It’s not just about understanding death better, it’s about learning to live more meaningfully, to connect more deeply with our own being and with those around us, and to support one another through challenging times with empathy and love.”
Both programs are open to the public. No registration or entrance fee is required.
