Park Talk: Pilgrimage, Sanctuary, and the Place of Parks & Nature at End of Life

We all feel it – whether looking outside, in a field, at a beach, or on a mountain – nature gives us perspective about life and death. In her talk “Pilgrimage, sanctuary, and the place of parks and nature at end of life” Dr. Sonya Jakubec will explain the background and lessons learned from a collection of Alberta Parks sponsored studies of park access and experiences for people in palliative care and grief and loss.  Through research discoveries, stories and documentary film, Sonya will share accounts of pilgrimage and sanctuary – and the ways parks and nature provide peace and comfort at end of life. Join us for this life affirming journey with your interest, dialogue and discussion – after all, nothing is more natural than death and loss!
