Crazy Wisdom Bookstore & Tearoom/ Saturday, July 19

According to the Hagakure, the book of the samurai, a wise man ought to meditate on death daily. OK, so maybe that's a bit dark, but there is some wisdom there—it's important to think about the end of life, as a means of grounding oneself. With that thought in mind, each month Crazy Wisdom hosts a friendly public forum, Death Café, for people to gather together and discuss mortality. The discussion group (NOT a counseling session) gathers people of all ages, races, ethnicities and religious backgrounds. Fitting; many things divide us, but death unites us. Grab some tea and get morbid this month.
