Death Diner? Seriously?

Well, yeah.  It happens to us all, and yet, talking about it is taboo.  So we’re offering a chance to change that.  Four dinners where the conversation is death and dying.  Each one with an experienced discussion leader – a doctor, a spiritual guide, a hospice leader, a mindfulness educator. We call the series Death Diner.  And it’s open to anyone. So tell your friends, family, neighbours — anyone who’s ready for some frank conversation about Life’s Biggest Challenge.

When: Four Wednesday evenings, 6 to 9 p.m. November 7 and 28
Where: Beach United Church
Cost: By donation

A light meal will be provided.

Register through Eventbrite or the BUC office. Check out our blog on the event here. For more information contact Karen Watson at karen.watson@kmwatson.com.
