Firmly on the side of the ordinary mortal – the Natural Death Centre

This is a brief article I wrote about the Natural Death Centre and the Lifetime Achievement Award it received in September this year.

The article appeared on the blog of the Kicking The Bucket Festival website. Kicking the Bucket is a month long festival held in Oxford in October every year.

As part of the festival I presented at the Home Funeral Network's day a short talk about the funeral of Nicholas Albery. He my husband, my co-founder and co-director of the NDC. He died in a car accident in 2001.

The Natural Death Centre celebrated its 25th anniversary this year!

Australian Death Cafes?

Posted by Harvey Meale on Sept. 18, 2016, 9:05 p.m.


Quick question, just wondering who to talk to regarding upcoming death cafes in Australia/Brisbane? I really want to discuss this topic and I think this is an excellent way to go about it.

I write a lot about death on my blog so if you'd like to join the discussion there, please feel free to do so! But yeah, anyone know anything about death cafes in AU?

Eine sonderbare Stille: Gespräch mit der Autorin Katharina Schmidt

Eine sonderbare Stille. Warum der Tod ins Leben gehört

Einst war er fixer Bestandteil des menschlichen Daseins und des gesellschaftlichen Alltags: Heute wird der Tod verdrängt, jeder Gedanke an das unweigerliche Ende so lange wie möglich hinausgeschoben. Während Sterbende der High Tech-Medizin überlassen werden und Trauern keinen Platz findet, diskutiert man auf politischer Ebene über die Suizidbeihilfe. Dazwischen stehen Fragen, die uns alle betreffen: Wie wollen wir uns dem Thema Tod wieder annähern? Wie können wir Alte und Sterbende besser versorgen? Und: Wie wollen wir selbst sterben? In ausführlichen Gesprächen mit Ärzten, Pflegenden und Angehörigen sucht Katharina Schmidt nach ...

Duck, Death and the Tulip

Posted by Continuity of Life on June 22, 2016, 11:40 a.m. 1 comment


The German children’s book author and illustrator Wolf Erlbruch offers a wonderfully warm and assuring answer in Duck, Death and the Tulip (public library) — a marvelous addition to the handful of intelligent and imaginative children’s books about death and loss.

Cafe-Finovo

Posted by lfylaktos on June 9, 2016, 10:10 a.m.


Password: lfylaktos.wordpress

"With patience and beauty, our understanding of mortality is altered as this film unfolds on life, laughter and Wilhelm Grimm. Set within the walls of the Alter St. Matthäus cemetery in Berlin, we meet artists, story-tellers and grave sponsors — the cultural life revolving around the lively café-finovo and it's reputable cakes. Café-finovo is the first café in a cemetery in Germany."

Death and Sustainability

Posted by Real Eguchi on May 14, 2016, 7:32 p.m.


Death and Sustainability

My interest is to tie death anxiety to our cultural unsustainabilty while exploring how aligning our inner and outer landscapes might help us deal with these issues.

Here is a link to pages 53-55 in a journal called Landscapes/ Paysage about this. It is the professional journal for landscape architects in Canada.
