Virtual Death Over Dinner – Online

November 18, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

FREE

The fear that exists around death often inhibits us from talking about it.  What I have learned is that by embracing death’s wisdom we tap into a rich resource to guide us on how we live, and die.  I invite you to join me in talking about death and what scares us so we can figure out what brings us to life

Our lives are spent figuring out how to live, and one of the most under-utilized resources is the wisdom that death offers. Covid-19 has been unforgiving in reminding us of the impermanence of life. As the world spins in this pandemic and we self isolate, it invites us to reflect on our lives and what is important and essential.

With over 1 million deaths it is hard to imagine that many were alone without their families by their side. How many conversations were left unsaid? How many end-of-life wishes were not fulfilled? How many people could not speak for themselves? The risk of not having the conversation is far greater than our fear of it.

Let’s talk about death now, when we are calm, curious and we can ask questions. We can take a seemingly difficult conversation and transform it into an uplifting and interactive online experience.

Discovering what we value, by talking with others, can reduce the fear and illuminate what is important, funny and endearing to us. It allows us to access the wisdom of mortality to help us uncover what we truly find essential so we may design a better life.

Feel free to bring food, your favourite beverage and courage to share.
