Date with Death Club:
A Multi-Session Curriculum to Explore Mortality in Community

The Date with Death Club (DwDC) is an opportunity to learn, share, and deepen your own understanding of what death means to you and how you want to approach death—particularly your own. “This class can help us face death with less fear and more curiosity, with less euphemism and more reality, with less conformity and more creativity.” [1] 

Classes meet from 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm on one (or two) Sundays per month, September through June.
