the live event series
Some videos from You're Going to Die's live event series, You're Going to Die: Poetry, Prose & Everything Goes... the communal offering for us to explore the conversation of death & dying, to embrace our losses & mortality, to grieve, bereave & honor those we’ve lost & love… while all the while making room for simply being ALIVE.
