Mere Mortals: "All Ready to Go?" with Stephen Garrett

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?
