The Art of Dying Well Tuesdays, once a month for 6 months, 1:30-3:30pm September 24, October 29, November 19, December 17, January 14, February 11 (While this is a come-when-you-can group, we hope you will plan to attend as many in the series as you are able)
Using 6 short pieces of fiction as our mother tongue, this series of conversations explores the dream of “the good death” as fodder for considering our own dying. We will read one piece of fiction each month in preparation for our monthly shared inquiry which will range from the logistical to the spiritual.
