Date with Death Club
Created by Karen G. Johnston, Date with Death Club (DwDC) explores mortality in community. DwDC is an opportunity to learn, share, and deepen your own understanding of what death means to you and how you want to approach death -- particularly your own.
This session will be Circle of Life: Loving & Losing & Learning. With love, comes loss. With living, comes dying. Using the popular documentary, “My Octopus Teacher,” we will explore what it means to stay open in the face of losing and how we can heal, even as we experience grief and sorrow.
DwDC is not a bereavement or grief support group. While it may be healing of the human condition, the nature of the DwDC is not specifically therapeutic. All are welcome to join, you do not have to register beforehand.
