Spiritual, Scientific & Practical
Approaches to Living & Dying

The Art of Dying conference series speaks to the progressive awakening of our culture to a more conscious view of our own mortality. Death and dying are topics that are discussed with increasing openness and with an awareness that our view of death profoundly impacts our experience of life

Our sixth conference proved to be well received in the series, featuring an incredible array of speakers, and content that significantly impacted those who were present for professional or personal exploration.  This series continues to show us how important this work truly is, re-affirming our commitment to continue to be part of the conversation, to drive the conversation and to share it with an engaged and inspired community
