Date & Time
9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Music at the bedside brings beauty, intimacy, and comfort to end-of-life patients. The senses of hearing and touch are the last to fade as a person winds their way towards death. Music invites listeners to be present to what is going on both inside and around them. Catharine’s workshop offers the most effective uses of live and recorded music for palliative individuals and their loved ones. She brings her experience as a freelance harpist, certified music-thanatologist, and contemplative musician to support patients and families, and help them encounter the dying process as a natural passage.
