The Art of Dying Institute is dedicated to fostering an engaged community of practitioners; researchers & scholars; educators; front-line innovators; partners; and donors to address the need for a cultural awakening around the theme of death and our mortality, how we die and the consequences for how we live.

The Art of Dying Institute is a non-profit organization bringing innovative, holistic perspectives to death and dying. It emerged from the Art of Dying conferences produced by the New York Open Center beginning in 1995. Its mission is to bring greater wisdom and consciousness to the field of thanatology. Based in New York City we bring profound and creative trainings, conferences and workshops to this vital arena.

We invite you to give in support of the area of our work that resonates with you.

Our General Fund supports those aspects of the Institute where the need is greatest
