Yes, it can be sad and messy and powerful and
hard and normal and absurd and
everything in between.
So many of us think of life and death as two separate things.
It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, the two are connected.
What if the things we cherish most in life were the same things we carry with us toward death? Those moments that make us feel awake. Loved. Human. What if we could live our lives – fully – all the way to the end?
Zen Hospice Project, IDEO and many others are exploring how we might provide the best care possible and design a better experience, for everyone. And we'd like you to join us.
We believe it starts with being open to the idea of discussing death. Daring to look at it, and bringing your own light to it.
If you'd like to get involved, help us grow, explore what could be, or simply add your voice to the conversation, we welcome you.
