Death is not waiting for us at the end of a long road. Death is always with us, in the marrow of every passing moment. She is the secret teacher hiding in plain sight. She helps us to discover what matters most.
The good news is we don’t have to wait until the end of our lives to realize the wisdom that death has to teach us. You are invited to an evening of inspiring conversation about our most taboo subject, the inevitable and intimate experience of dying. In both our professional and personal lives, a mindful and wise relationship with death can be a valuable companion on the road to living well, setting priorities, meeting crisis and forging a meaningful life, free of regret.
