Event description

Description

What is our relationship with death in North America? How does death culture influence our interactions and overall societal health?

Examples of death-avoidance are abundant in Western civilization, visible in people’s reactions of fear, defensiveness, othering, and resistance to change. Emotional responses to aging and dying can trigger paralyzing and negative repercussions for the path onward.

Yet, death is a natural and inevitable process in life. Let’s consider the benefits derived from accepting the basic cycle of life and death and inquire how coming to terms with death might foster both internal and external peace. 



If this concept interests you, join us for a Kitchen Table Conversation about the importance of death and dying in driving social change. This casual, open-ended forum provides space for people with divergent perspectives to gather, explore ideas and cultivate new understandings. Among the questions we’ll consider:

  • What lessons have we gleaned from death in our own lives? What do we personally value about it?
  • How does Western culture value death (or not) and what is our relationship to it?
  • How can we grow to better accept death as a natural process and how can that acceptance drive social change?

Please arrive a few minutes early for a prompt 7:00 pm start time.

NOTE: 

We will have modest munchies but please take care of your dinner needs prior to arrival. The $10 fee is to help cover the cost of the room.
