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.

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.
A look at what one woman wishes someone had told her before she spread her husband's ashes around the world. A must read if you'll ever have a first time with cremated remains.
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.
