LEWISTON —  A film and discussion titled, “Re-thinking the End of Life,” facilitated by Valerie Lovelace, the executive director of It’s My Death, a Maine-based nonprofit, will be presented at the Lewiston Public Library, Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 6 p.m. in Callahan Hall. The event is free and open to all.

The evening opens with the showing of the film, “How to Die in Oregon,” the winner of the grand jury prize for documentaries at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

Following the film, Lovelace will lead a group discussion.  She is a healer educated in homeopathy, Reiki, and other forms of energetic work who provides support to clients and their families throughout the entire journey from diagnosis to death. It’s My Death, based in Wiscasset, is an organization providing services and education to people who wish to actively explore the meaning of life through embracing the certainty of death.
