Event description

Description

“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this, too, was a gift.”

Mary Oliver, Thirst

Join us in keeping this much needed conversation about death alive. From Advanced Directives to honoring our ancestors. From home funerals and green burials to artistic expressions of grief. Let's gather as a community and delve deeper into the topic of death and all of its facets.

This gathering’s topic is “DEATH ACROSS CULTURES.” We will gather to listen to the village rites of four different cultural groups very different from the dominant Western culture. Each guest speaker will present for approximately ten minutes, followed by a group discussion.

This event is open to anyone. This is a vulnerable topic - so feel free to express your feelings. Bring your poetry. Bring your wisdom. Bring your knowledge. Bring your tears. But most of all - bring an open mind.

And yes. Cupcakes will be served.
