Introducing Death Collective: Founded by Margaret Verschuur, with contributions from original members including Mercedes Grant, Brittany Baxter and Fawn Baron.
Death & Dying – It’s a topic that affects us all, yet it’s not given the attention it needs. We are a group of folks who are enthusiastic about opening up conversations about death, dying, and grief. We’d like to explore how to prepare for our own death, become knowledgeable about current practices, as well as alternative approaches, and generally become more comfortable with the subject, enabling us to live more vibrantly today. – See full Tideline post, March 11, by Mercedes Grant
