This course presents an excellent combination of academic, historical, and experiential perspectives. I love the inclusion of humor throughout the course. I look forward to taking more courses and using more resources that Alua Arthur puts together. She is gifted at helping others think about death in a variety of different ways. u
This course is comprehensive without being overwhelming or repetitive. It is a great introduction to studying/working with Death. I appreciate the diversity in materials (articles, videos...) and the inclusion of reflection questions. This course has helped me to look at death on a cultural and personal level. I highly recommend this course to everyone.
I learned a lot. There were some eye-opening cultural aspects to dying that I'd never been exposed to. I appreciated this exposure as well as the chance to contemplate my own situation more fully. Thank you
There are various forms of art just like there are various views and rituals around death and dying. This course gave many different perspectives on death and dying that were educational and worth learning about.
This course was such a wonderful start to my journey in exploring death care and my own feelings about death. I enjoyed the combination of reading and video. It definitely helped me stay engaged.
The class was helpful and I had some wonderful moments where I felt a truly deeper sense of understanding(s) get planted and spring forth. I enjoyed the readings, the way it is structured and the One Minute contemplative videos shorts are all phenomenal. Thank you.
