The volunteers of St. Peter's Church will be providing baked goodies for the evening, along with coffee, tea and water.

About Pastor Janaki Bandera

Pastor Janaki Bandera says "in our culture and context, death is sanitized and we tend to not talk about how our own finitude shapes how we live our lives. I am hosting a Death Cafe as a means of bringing this difficult topic for conversation out into the open so people can have a safe space to talk and the conversation can be healthy."

Cambridge Death Cafe will be facilitated by Merri-Lee Agar from Home Hospice Association. Merri-Lee is a Death Doula, Reiki Master and Bereavement Specialist. She found herself pursuing a career in dying, death and grief after she companioned her own mother on her dying journey in 2010. Merri-Lee feels that part of her calling as a Death Doula is to create an awareness of our mortality so we can live more meaningful lives each day. Death Cafe's are the perfect platform to explore thoughts, beliefs, fears and questions about dying and death. Many people WANT to talk about it, but don't feel they have the space to do so.
