Date & Time is currently being rescheduled

Talking about death and dying is society's last taboo. However, there is strong evidence to support a need to be more open about death. There will be no agenda on the day other than to support the discussion with those who want to come to terms with their mortality, make end-of-life plans and use that to embrace the life they live now. This is an opportunity to bring death into focus; interesting conversation is guaranteed.
