What we're about

Bringing the topics of death, dying, grief, and grieving out of the shadows and into the light. Discussions within the local gatherings and private Facebook group (please request to join!) are expected to hold space for others, wherever they are today, with respect and dignity. Please be compassionate to others as well as yourself. This is a safe space for us to help normalize the very normal journeys of death and dying. Welcome to all.
