The Creative Culture Guide [BETA]

"Traditional" approaches to the end-of-life are shifting; as more and more people age and maintain health, as more conscious and compassionate humans are faced with terminus, as enviromental and political scenarios show compound fatalities, questions regarding the "best way to die" are becoming increasingly common and out in the open in new, evolving ways.

As the range of options grow, as compassion, consciousness and in some cases, creativity make for new conversation, the topic of dying is being examined anew. Environmental, familial, spiritual and practical concerns are more relevant now than ever before in our cultures and knowing the range of options and the consequences of those options are an important aspect of modern life.
