AGE Advanced Conversations: The Art of Living and Dying Well

AGE Advanced Conversations: The Art of Living and Dying Well

This gathering is for people who identify as women and nonbinary people in the second half of life. We will talk about life and death as natural and empowering. We will dig into our true selves and possibly gain more clarity about what is important and precious.

Life and death are one. How we view death impacts how we live life. Death is not often spoken about because we fear it. When we fear death, we do not live fully. Confronting that which we fear, embracing the feelings fully, can be empowering. Join us for rich conversation and discovery.

AGE was proud to host a rare convergence of award-winning Indigenous playwrights. Telling Native Stories to Rehumanize Native People focused on the social justice of rehumanizing Native people who have been systematically erased by colonialism.  More than 200 people at TOC were rocked and awakened by Native artists, activists and writers.  You can now listen to the full panel discussion, enjoy and share!
