Please join Africa Book Club for a live special book event, as we welcome author Dr. Helena Dolny to Washington, DC to discuss her book Before Forever After.
This special book event will take place at Busboys and Poets in Washington, DC, USA. PLEASE RSVP HERE.
Dr. Helena Dolny will discuss her new book, Before Forever After. She will talk about why it is so important to have conversations about how we want to live and what matters to us when we die.
Helena Dolny is an international executive and life coach based in South Africa. In her book, Before Forever After, she shares 50 real-life short stories about how people deal with ‘end-of-life’ situations and why this matters. The book highlights the difficult (but necessary) decisions and challenges that we often have to face, when dealing with a terminal illness or loss involving ourselves or people close to us. In the book, Helena shares suggestions and checklists to inspire further reflections on how to deal with loss – particularly the emotional, psychological, financial, and health implications. Dr. Dolny believes that by engaging consciously and continually with our mortality, we suffer less, experience life more fully, and reduce the stress that often comes with experiencing loss.
“As a mental health clinician and university academic with twenty years experience, I can say without fear of contradiction that this book is a landmark publication… Although Dr. Dolny’s perspective draws on an adulthood lived under the warm sun of Africa, her deeply compassionate message is for anyone living anywhere on the planet who will die one day or who might find themselves preparing to say farewell to friends and family. Read it sooner rather than later.” — Michael Solomon on Good Reads (read this and other reviews here)
