Event description
Creating a more empathic society through meditation, education, art and studies about death and dying

About this Event

5 This symposium is about death and dying. It is open to all who are interested in learning more about death and dying or for those who are already immersed in this way of life either through experience or vocation. Yes, we will cry, yes, we will laugh and yes, your jaw will drop at some of the conversations! Attendees who have never had open and honest conversation, end-of-life training or direct experience with death or dying are encouraged to attend at least one Death Café (at any location- they are free) just so you can begin to get comfortable with open conversation about death!

The purpose for this symposium is to create a more empathic society through studies and conversation about death and dying. This weekend will have plenty of space for those who wish to have a light retreat and plenty of socialization for those who want to engage.

Topics for this symposium run three tracks, education, meditation/contemplation and art Please carefully read what your ticket includes if you did not purchase the Pre Sale All Access ticket.
