“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 Advanced Directives and Living Wills. We will imagine, question and discuss with a Home Funeral Guide, Jenny Bingham, and a Notary will be available for finalizing dying time plans.
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.
