In Zimbabwe it is said "If you can walk you can dance, and if you can talk you can sing."   A "community sing" is about ordinary people joining their friends and neighbors in a public place to sing, just for the fun of it. At each meeting, participants learn song parts by listening and singing back, not by reading music. By the end, there's often a beautiful three part harmony that emerges. This gathering is a multi-generational, bring-the-family* kind…

With a thriving presence in Europe, The Death Café movement is spreading through the US. What is this, you ask? It’s pretty simple…  At a Death Café, people of all stripes gather to drink coffee and tea, eat snacks and cake, and share thoughts and feelings about death. There is no set agenda, and the discussion might range from the philosophical (death rituals around the world, what happens after we die?) to the practical (end-of-life care, funeral preferences, etc.) and…

This movie is 1:18 long. This film is not rated, but is deemed appropriate for all audiences. Childcare is not provided on movie nights, and…
