Well Dying Campaign


Somang Society conducts educational seminars on “well-being, well-aging, and well-dying.” Death preparation education consists of determining one’s desire for treatment, dementia prevention for successful aging, information about the hospice system, organ and body donation, smoother funeral procedures, and assistance with making decisions to relieve burden on families after the death.
For those who are unable to attend our regular seminars, Somang Society additionally makes visits to churches, nursing homes, and senior communities. Our death preparation seminars provide information about “beautiful life, beautiful departure.”
If you would like to request a seminar or if you have any inquiries, please contact Somang Society’s office at (562) 977-4580, or email us at

From Avoiding Death to Welcoming Death

As we live, we actively prepare for many things such as marriage and childbirth, but the end of our lives is often not on our minds. Furthermore, when our deaths occur, our families are often overwhelmed by the decisions that follow.

Death is often perceived as a dark and gloomy process and is intentionally ignored. Somang Society, however, courageously addresses death. We hope to educate people about death in order for all of us to live more cherished and beautiful lives.

Seminars, Forums, & Conferences

Somang Society visits various organizations and provides education on subjects related to end of life preparation such as of Advance Healthcare Directives, Hospice Care, Willed Body Program, and Emergency Contact Card.

Grief Support Group

To provide comfort, hope and empathy, we meet with grieving family members in our Grief Support Group to share their pain and sorrow.

Body Donation

In cooperation with the UCI Willed Body Program, we help those who wish to donate their bodies to the program through the application process.

Advanced Healthcare Directive

Somang Advance Healthcare Directives is a legal document that provides information on healthcare decisions, organ donation, and funeral options to prevent unnecessary confusion to family members during emergency situations where the patient is unable to make decisions due to illness or incapacity.
