Most Americans are afraid of death. We have become so detached from the process that many fear even talking about it. What was once a contemplative and spiritual experience is now often an expensive and isolating medical event.   

Hospitals are important places for healing, but are they ideal places to die? In our death-denying culture, people often approach conversations about mortality only in times of acute need, often too late for creating an experience that reflects and honors their wishes. Even more critically, many have no access to resources that would help them prepare for and move through this stage of life. 

By demonstrating how dying can be an experience of peace, love and belonging, The Last Ecstatic Days documentary film illustrates the power of conscious choices around the end of life. 

The Last Ecstatic Days was filmed to inspire audiences with a vision of what is possible when death is embraced with preparation and intention. It tells the story of one man’s determination to live every moment as fully as possible, and to die surrounded by love.

This film’s impact campaign will galvanize a mass movement towards living consciously and dying in community.
