I wish the author had credited Jon and Lizzy as well but I thought this was a lovely article other than that omission. The journalist covers our last Marin Death Cafe and then writes poignently about her own grief journey through the death of her beloved husband.

A lot of new faces at our most recent Cafe ! About 35 of us met to talk about faith, God, relationships, planning, grief, bucket lists and our constant companion..denial.
The evaluations were almost unanimous in commenting that 90 minutes was not long enough, with only one saying it was too long.
As always, the sharing was heartfelt and touching.
With so much death and destruction in the world this week, we pray for peace and comfort for all who are suffering.

I feel honored to facilitate Death Cafes in Carmel, IN because I believe there is a hunger in people today to talk about death, the final taboo. I am proud ...
The first Carmel Death Cafe was held on Sunday July 20, 2014! What a great group of people to meet. They were enthusiastic and grateful for one another; in fact, the "theme" in their evaluation comments was that they appreciated being with like-minded people who were willing to talk about death and dying. One even called it "fun" and another referred to it as a "fresh breath of openness". Love that!

On June 24th Last Breath offered another opportunity for the Warkworth community to participate in a stimulating conversation about death and dying, We had 25 people attend and the feedback was that this event was interesting, informative and enlightening. There was a varied faith tradition background with this particular event which proved challenging at times for some of the participants. All in all a lively time had by all.
We are offering our next Cafe in Brighton Ontario in August and we hope there will be enough interest for people to attend during this time of year.
