Let's Talk About Death Over Dinner

I'm very excited you will be joining me for our first Death Over Dinner in Todos Santos. 

 

This project has been rapidly inspiring a growing community of people to talk about an often-not-discussed topic: death and dying. 
 

This isn't meant to be a morbid conversation, but a very human one, where we consider what we want, both in life and during its close. Let's talk about it -- so we can lean into any fears we might have, get rid of inhibitions, and build deeper connections.

Dinner Details

Date: Saturday, October 23, 2021

Time: 6:30 pm

Location: Casita San Lorenzo in Las Brisas  (pin location TB sent)

Bring: your open hearts + have in mind a dear one who has passed 

So that we have starting places for our shared conversations, I've selected a few "homework" assignments for all of us to read, watch, and listen to before we gather at the table. They are very short, but are engaging, informative, and inspiring.

What Really Matters at the End of Life

At the end of our lives, what do we most wish for? For many, it's simply comfort, respect, love. BJ Miller is a hospice and palliative medicine physician who thinks deeply about how to create a dignified, graceful end of life for his patients. Take the time to savor this moving talk, which asks big questions about how we think on death and honor life.
