National Day of Listening

The National Day of Listening was started by StoryCorps in 2008. Each year, on the day after Thanksgiving, StoryCorps asks all Americans to take an hour to record an interview with a loved one, using recording equipment readily available in most homes-such as computers, iPhones, tape recorders, or pen and paper-along with StoryCorps' free Do-It-Yourself Instruction Guide, available to download at http://www.nationaldayoflistening.org/. It's one of the least expensive, but most meaningful, gifts you can give your loved ones this holiday season!


The 2011 National Day of Listening takes place on Friday, November 25, 2011. Instead of getting lost in Black Friday's long shopping lines, get lost in a conversation with a loved one!

Those who work with the dying understand the important process of meaning-making at the end of life. HFA recently produced a series of webinars focusing on various techniques and strategies for supporting people in this process. For more information, go to:
