We’re all just walking each other home.
― Ram Dass
Despite all of the recent attention to death and the process of dying in America, direct and heart-centered conversations about death are still rare—and patients and families frequently have unmet needs. As part of our work at Commonweal, we have listened deeply to people talking about these issues for decades. Our vision for this series is to contribute to a growing conversation about death in America. We’re creating a public space where questions of death and dying can be explored in safety and without judgment. The following conversations are part of this growing series.
