Is Facebook a Safe Space to Grieve? | The Order of the Good Death

Even though I didn't know Pepper*, her death impacted me. I'd heard her name spoken in passing by my friend Elizabeth - their adventures, her yearly visits to Elizabeth's home on the east coast, the mundane stories that sounded spectacular through the lens of "My best friend and I..."

Death Salon Seattle

November 2017

Final Wish attended the Death Salon Conference in Seattle in September and it was amazing. Team members learned a lot in this three day event. It was held at The University of Washington from September 8th to the 10th and was full of great speakers, like minded organizations and awesome people interested in the Death Positive movement.

Death Salon Seattle was put on by members Megan Rosenbloom, together with co-founder Caitlin Doughty, Social Media Editor Sarah Troop and their team.

For the full program as a PDF, go here.

The Final Wish team highly recommends attending the Death Salon conferences, as they are very informative and in our opinion not morbid at all. Quite the opposite. There were speeches on end-of-life planning, green burials, dealing with the grief of losing a loved one and the future of the funeral industry.

The cost was $125 per person which is quite reasonable for a three day event including meals and snacks.

The Final Wish team would like to thank Tanya Marsh for her great speech on the future of the funeral industry, Sarah Chavez for her talk on Women in the funeral industry. Chanel Reynolds from GYST on the importance of end-of-life planning. We must also thank Megan Devine, for her speech on dealing with grief. Matt Ignacio's talk on Native American death cultures. Jeff Jorgensen (Elemental Green Funeral Home) and Nora Menkin (The Co-Op Funeral Home) for their thoughts on the industry. 

All the speakers were great and had a ton of information, but one stood out in particular. Brian Flowers and his speech on Green Burials was empowering, inspiring and was one of the greatest talks we have ever seen. This man has passion for Green Burial and the funeral industry and if you ever get the chance to hear him speak don't miss it.

The Final Wish team wants to extend our gratitude to the Death Salon Organizers who worked very hard to put this event together and we look forward to attending next year's Death Salon Conference in Boston, MA, USA in the fall of 2018.

Sincerely, The Final Wish Team.
