One of the things we never talk about is the one thing that we all have in common: we will all die. 

Yet we don’t treat death the way we treat other human developmental stages. Nobody wants to bring it up, we often fail to plan for it, and we may end up in crisis when it is looming. Our inspiring and engaging speakers have dedicated their lives and careers to talking about death and dying. They would love to tell you’re their stories, especially about how replacing fear and denial with openness and acceptance improves the quality of life that you are living.

Session 1: All Ready to Go?

One of the things we never talk about is the one thing that we all have in common: we will all die. Join our engaging speakers as they discuss, tell stories, and explore death and mortality.

When you meet Stephen, you are meeting a man who lives life fully. A genuine heart and commitment to life have produced in Stephen the qualities of a warrior: integrity, strength, leadership, kindness, and wisdom. He has experienced success in life as a teacher, investment banker, social worker, author, Interfaith Minister, and currently executive director of the Memorial Society of BC.

Arising out of his personal experience of hundreds of deaths Stephen’s heart passion and life energy are focused on changing the conversation we have about death from one of fear and denial to one of embrace and inspiration. Stephen combines his life experience with his Masters in Leadership and Training as he trains and mentors people interested in dealing with dying, death, and grief in new and inspiring ways. Reverend Garrett is an author, educator, coach, and trainer specializing in reframing our approach to dying, death and grief.

The World According to Amazon               
Thursday, October 8 | 2:00pm-4:00pm

In 1994, in a Seattle garage, Jeff Bezos created a bookstore. 25 years later, his company owns over 250 warehouses, ships 14 million parcels a day and dominates the e-commerce market in five continents. The World According to Amazon pulls back the curtain on Bezos’ monolith — revealing how it’s impacted so many aspects of our lives, making him the world’s richest person in the process. But for Bezos, dominating a city is not enough, and so he’s turned his attention to the skies, or, more specifically, the cloud. Amazon is the leader in online data storage infrastructure. 70% of the world's Internet now travels through Amazon’s data centres in Northern Virginia. The World According to Amazon explores how a single company impacts the distribution of products, the infrastructure of our economy, and the data that defines us.

This meeting will be held on Zoom. You can watch the film with the group at 2:00pm, or watch on your own and join us at 3:00pm for a great discussion!

What you’ll need to attend: a computer with microphone (or headphones) and webcam, or your smartphone/tablet.

Session 2: Death Cafes

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Join Anne Ellis for a chat about these Cafes and why they’re becoming popular. A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives, or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. (from deathcafe.com)

Anne Ellis is a member of the ministry staff at Mt.Seymour United Church and a second year MDiv (Master of Divinity) student at the Atlantic School of Theology. As a lover of rich, deep conversation, being a past facilitator of Death Cafe, she had the opportunity to engage in conversation around a most taboo subject, Death and Dying.
