Courses Introduction


“I’ve been privileged to hear Christine Longaker lecture and conduct workshops on death and dying on several occasions over the years and I’ve always been deeply touched.  Yes, she’s an ‘expert’ in possessing so much useful and practical knowledge, but far more than that is the quality of her presence that vivifies her knowledge: this is a compassionate, caring woman who is there for you.”
