"My Gift of Grace: An Innovative

Approach to End-of-Life Conversations"

Sunday November 22, 2015

3 pm Pacific/6 pm Eastern

Join Death Expo host Dr. Karen Wyatt as she and her guest Jethro Heiko discuss the game My Gift of Grace, which was designed by Common Practice and is "a conversation game for living and dying well." 

In this interview you will learn:

  • How Jethro and his partners conceived of My Gift of Grace
  • How the game is played and who can play it
  • Results of a study involving the My Gift of Grace game
  • Stories and feedback from those who have benefitted from the game

Jethro Heiko is the CEO of Common Practice, leading the company’s mission to make better conversations about advance care planning, serious illness, and death a common practice.

Jethro has over 20 years of experience applying his skills in community organizing, strategic nonviolence, and bereavement to authentically and deeply engage individuals, organizations, and communities. He brings his skills in leadership development, organization-building, and guiding multi-stakeholder initiatives to Common Practice’s drive for meaningful and systemic change.

Following the death of his father 20 years ago, Jethro founded a bereavement support organization which helped college students cope with the serious illness or death of a loved one. Jethro learned how meaningful these conversations about what matters most can be, and was struck that people do not have to wait until there is a health crisis to benefit from these conversations.

Jethro grew up in Boston and lives in Philadelphia with his wife, Chelsea, and his children, Hazel and Orson.
