In this provocative talk, Deathwalker ZenithVirago challenges to take back control of the process of dying from the profit-driven death industry. She has helped hundreds of people radically rethink their death journey and create experiences that are full of joy and creativity, open to discovery and in appreciation of the mystery. As Ram Dass said, “They are all just walking each other home”.
