Most of us will encounter mortality many times before we kick the bucket — be it at the funeral of a loved one or as we walk down a dreary hospital hallway.

In this installment of PredicTED, we take you beyond grief and into what could be a beautiful world of death. How might we alter our funeral practices so that we may embrace balance while we’re alive? How might the living remember the dead? What will happen to our bodies and our minds? These TED speakers urge us to reimagine death. They argue we can begin to honor our lives all the way through — treating death as the summit rather than the inescapable end.

How do you want to die?
