Mindful Cooking: Alchemy & Transformation

Hosted By

Presence

This is going to be a night of shamanic alchemy and transformations. A rite of passage to understand death and connect with the food that feeds us while we live until we ourselves become food for other creatures. Then, we will cook together.

Death Over Dinner: The Jewish Edition

Hosted By

JCCSF / Reboot

Reboot and JCCSF present Death Over Dinner Shabbat. The way we die — end-of-life decisions, death rituals, what happens after we die — is probably the most important conversation we are not having. In the unique setting of Carousel Consignment SF, surrounded by keepsakes and reminders of the past, Reboot and JCCSF invite you to transition out of the workweek and enter a space of ritual and reflection.
