Death over Dim Sum

Sunday, October 27

5:00pm-8:00pm

868 Kearny St
San Francisco, CA 94108
A community conversation about end-of-life planning where you (and your 奶奶) can order dumplings with a side of your most burning questions about end of life planning.

Death over Dim Sum is a bilingual discussion and dinner experience that brings together local end-of-life experts and Asian Americans of all ages.

Each table has an order form akin to a traditional dim sum service, except instead of food items listed, you will decide on topics, questions, and conversation starters. Together with your table, you will decide on what items to “order” from the form.

The categories of questions you can order from include: green burial, estate and financial planning, end of life doulas, palliative care, celebrations of life, funeral planning, and more.

We hope to start a conversation between generations in a culture where discussion of death is often taboo.

Rest assured, conversation won’t be the only thing served! We will provide food, tea, and activities to fuel participants into the evening.

All materials will be served in both English and Chinese (Mandarin & Cantonese.)

“吃點心談往生” 是將本地的美籍華人和一些對生命終結有認識的專業人士,聚集一起以中英雙語對話的聚會和晚餐。

每張餐桌上都有一張類似傳統的點心單。 但點心單上讓你點的不是食物,而是一些主題,問題和各種話題。 你和同桌的人可以從點心單上決定點些什麼題目。

你可以點的題目包括:綠色環保葬禮,遺產和財務規劃,臨終看護,寧養治療,歌頌生命,葬禮計劃等等。

通過這次聚會希望不同年齡的參與者可以打破忌諱,談論一下在他們的文化中很避忌的題目,死亡。

各位放心,今天晚上為你們準備的,不但只是會談,還準備了點心,茶水和各種活動。讓參與者可以度過愉快的一晚。

所有印刷品都以英文和中文(普通話和廣東話)製作。
