Finding What Feeds Us: Wrap-up from our LA launch (+ where we're heading next)

On Saturday, February 22, we held the first of a series of launch events, marking the transition from formerly secret-ish society to bona fide organization (call it our "I'm a real boy!" Pinnochio moment).

We discovered many things that night: the first that, yes, by jove, it's possible for people who've lost someone and people who haven't to be in the same room together, and to talk openly about it.  We discovered it's possible for those same people to simultaneously have fun. We discovered that plate-breaking is really satisfying, and that sugar skulls are absurdly easy to make. We discovered that there is no shortage of ways to feed mind, body, and spirit, and that we are each our own best experts as we navigate life after loss.   

Huge thanks to Good Eggs LA and Constellation Brands for the fine food and drink; to Nicole Weingart for the stellar photos; to DJ Trent for spinning the tunes; and to our amazing crew of volunteers who made our LA launch party such a success.

Next up: San Francisco, 3/22; DC, 4/8; NYC, date TBA
