Time once again for Eudaimonia. Normally we get together to share ideas for living the best life we can (and the only one we get). One area of life that is often overlooked is planning for the end of it. This is a broad topic, so I thought we would start the series with a discussion on what options we have for our earth suit - i.e. our bodies - once we've kicked the proverbial bucket. To that end I've invited a speaker from Science Care (blurb below) to talk to us about what they have to offer in this regard (all of which is free!!). Our speaker, Tiffany, will be in town (from Arizona) and has graciously agreed to come speak to our group. After her short talk we'll have a Q & A followed by the usual round table discussion.
Because many of us are science buffs, and we don't like the idea of anything "religious" being done with our bodies, it's important to explore options now before it's too late. And if these options are all free, all the better!
So, unless you're tied down with church, I hope you'll come join us for food, drink, and discussions around our inevitable ends.
Most people in our group want to build the elusive Atheist Community - Eudaimonia meetups are a great step towards doing just that. So please join us and share your thoughts!
