Our first Death Café in Marrickville was launched in spectacular style. Hosted by Lazy Bones Lounge, by night a Jazz club but by day open for Death Café, we met as a group of strangers sitting together in overstuffed couches, dim lighting and eclectic décor all of which was perfect for our conversation.
It had taken some time to find the right location, but I knew I had when after speaking with Craig the owner about the possibility of holding a Death Café he had said to me, “what a great idea”. And the rest is history.

It never ceases to amaze me how people can come together, many and most as strangers, sit in a circle and allow themselves to all become connected at some level.

Here's what we had to say afterwards: open and safe conversation, nurturing, honest, awakening, deep connections formed quickly, thoughtful and informative, low key. Oh the places we roamed - playing ukuleles in beautiful cemeteries, what we want for our own deaths, new and old ways to approach death, caring for our dead. Brownies, the homeys at ‘the Couth’, and little Luna in her chair. We want to do it again and again.
