Death is natural but our fear and the mystery surrounding it is not helpful. We are not going to glue ourselves to anything but there is a change coming and it’s name is Death positivity.  We can’t change it so let’s think about to and what we need to do so that we can get on with the business of living our best life knowing we have left plans for our best death. We need to talk.  
 
We’re on eventbrite due to limited spaces.
