Death over Drafts Happy Hour
Cheers! Join this interactive & informal community to spark compassion, curiosity, & connection around topics of end-of-life and grief. Special Guest: Emma Payne, Grief Coach Founder & CEO.

Death over Drafts Happy Hour is an opportunity for those who serve in the end of life space and the curious to gather. It started in October 2019 with Stefanie Elkins, Eldercare Specialist/End-of-Life Doula with Be Present Care along with Jill Schock, Death Doula LA, welcomed others who shared their passions-beer tasting & engaging conversations on death & dying. Monthly Happy Hours continued at different greater Los Angeles breweries until COVID-19 where it then switched to Zoom*

Wellness Caregiving End-of-Life Planning Grief Living Fully

This event is in honor of Grief in all its forms.

Starting 2022 in acknowledging and honoring grief over setting resolutions seems the most authentic way for me to start the year and continue forward for myself and in community.

As beings we are all affected (knowingly or unknowingly) with loss be it a person, "place" or thing.
