About this Death Cafe
I met Lizzy Miles at a conference about 5 years ago and she told me about Death Cafes. I have wanted to host one since then, but life's unexpected events kept preventing me from doing so until recently. When I heard that Jon had died, it spurred me to make it happen as a tribute to him.
About Candice Courtney
Candice Courtney has been fascinated with cultural anthropology since the early 90s when she began studying rituals connected with major life passages, such as death, marriage and birth, as well as ritual traditions connected with holidays. Her custom ceremonies, workshops, and writings have enriched the lives of people all over the U. S. She presents at national and international conferences to help others move through their journey with greater grace and meaning. She is the author of Healing Through Illness, Living Through Dying: Guidance and Rituals for Patients, Families, and Friends.
