Next Tuesday, April 17, I’ll be participating in the citywide Reimagine End of Life festival across San Francisco from April 16-22. The evening I’m part of is called Memento Mori.
Memento Mori is an ancient Roman phrase meaning “Remember Your Mortality.” Come experience a night of amazing creators sharing their work and unique backstories on the topic of mortality, loss, memory, and love.
The lineup for Memento Mori is:
- investigation of the history of the lost cemeteries of SF – Loren Rhoads
- Emotions and the end of life ( Fear and Panic) from the Western Psychological Point of view, how secular Buddhism can help (Separate-Selflessness and Impermanence) – Dr. Paul Ekman and Dr. Eve Ekman
- death of neighborhoods and the effect on the people that live there – Liz Ogbu
- the art of shadow puppetry and the stories within -Daniel Barash
- a poignant visual symphony covering a recent police shooting of a young man, from a healing mother’s perspective – Angelica Ekeke
- tracing the roots of the themes of dying, death and mourning at the end of life, and how we can deal with it – Dr. September Williams
- and a thought provoking look at the sound in hospitals and how it effects our ability to heal and to die in peace….Yoko Sen
