Celebrating Catilin Doughty's From Here to Eternity, a book that explores death practices around the world, we welcome you to participate even if you haven't read the book. Bring the meal you would choose for your Last Meal, and wear the clothes you want to be buried in. We'll have tea service, a fresh flower crown station, and an informal discussion about death practices in our own lives and around the world.
