In Lieu Of Flowers
Author and Presenter, Nancy Howard Cobb speaks.
Nancy is donating her time to ONE-ON-CAMPUS and the community as a whole. Her message is as relevant today as it was in 2001 when In Lieu of Flowers: A Conversation for the Living was featured on the Oprah Winfrey show.
This event is open to the students, faculty and the community.
“Grieving is as natural as breathing, for if we have lived and loved, surely we will grieve. . . .”
Nancy Cobb meets death in the most vital of places–in the lives of everyday people–and in doing so has found a way to infuse this darkest subject with light. Her candor and refreshing perspective make those she has loved–and death itself–a subject to explore rather than to avoid.
Cobb’s personal experiences become a point of departure for what amounts to a longer conversation about loss. In telling stories about encounters with grief, Cobb opens us up to our own experiences, and she encourages us to accept and honor the “divine intersections” where the living meet the dying.
Ticket donations go to support the ONE-ON-Campus Drop-in at Corona Del Mar High School. Please consider ONE in your giving or corporate matching campaigns. ONE is a 501(c)3 Organization.
