We’re All Gonna Die — And That’s Good News

Life and death situations have a way of grounding us into being honest with ourselves, and clarifying what matters most. Why is that? In this talk, we’ll explore what usually gets in the way of true honesty with ourselves and others, what we can learn from the clarifying experiences of people in crisis, and how we can all get better at practicing honesty in our everyday lives.
