This workshop provides an opportunity to gather and explore human issues

that affect us all. By sharing our experiences we will become more familiar with:

  • Care planning
  • Hospice and comfort care
  • Green burial and home funeral
  • Loss, grief and self care support
  • Death Café/Death Over Dinner/The Conversation Project
  • Movies, music and the written word
  • Local resources to continue the conversation

A roundtable format will be used, offering a safe environment for open, respectful dialogue. This retreat is open to all who have an interest in end-of-life matters. In addition to our discussions, there will be time for personal and shared reflections through yoga, art, music and walks on the beautiful Old Mission Peninsula.
