Twin Cities March Event: Death Over Easy

brunch_lg
Join us for “Death Over Easy,” a community brunch with conversations about death.
Circle around the table for brunch and conversation on a topic that we like to keep under the table. We will listen to each other and share our collective wisdom about death. Through exploring thoughts and feelings, we can more readily move through fears, shed inhibitions, and forge deeper connection with our loved ones.  It can be that easy!

So that we can have starting places for our shared conversations,  we have selected a couple short, engaging, informative, and inspiring pieces that we encourage you to read, watch, and listen.

Bronnie Ware worked for many years with patients who were in the last three to twelve weeks of their lives. She shares the five most common regrets they shared with her.

Watch:  You only die once. Engage with Grace.Eliza Corporation founder Alexandra Drane delivers a passionate talk about the need to discuss end of life decisions, and how we can approach this topic with grace and dignity. At the heart of this short video is a powerful story of losing a family member to cancer.deathoverdinner.org

Listen:  Breaking the Taboo of Talking About DeathMichael Hebb, founder of deathoverdinner.org, says how we want to die represents the most important and costly conversation Americans aren’t having. He explains how this project gives people the tools to move through these conversations.
