On November 16 we had in attendance 6 people who were very interested in talking about and sharing their personal expereinces concerning death.  There is a lot of curiosity out there about this subject - one which many of us have been taught not to talk too much about.  However, our group demonstrated that given the opportunity and a truly safe place to talk about it and lots of feelings, thoughts and emotions will come out.  I am looking forward to our next Cafe to be held on December 14 in the same location.



Death Cafe write up: Low Country Death Cafe

Posted by Jan Schreiber on Dec. 5, 2017, 2:59 p.m.


Apparently, a beautiful, sunny Saturday afternoon didn’t keep people away!  With over 17 participants, 11 were first-timers.  Possibly, because it was scheduled at the beginning of the (sometimes difficult) holidays or because  the venue, Bridge To Avalon, “is a “spiritual center & collaborative environment for the healing arts” ...either way, people arrived ready to share.  And share they did!

It was a deeply emotional afternoon, with discussion relating to profound loss, resistive acceptance, deep sorrow & rage.  

Comments included:  ok to be angry, thankful for the conversation, healing, expanded perspective/compassion, very uplifting, less prompting from the facilitator, meet more often please!

Am hoping to schedule the next Low ...

We met in the basement of the Urbana Library and had a good conversation. Four attendees were new. We served coffee and cake and it was well-received. 

Conversation topics were: history of death through the ages, home versus funeral home funerals, and unscrupulous behavior by family members at the time of or after death.

One woman discussed that her Mom gave her post it notes to mark items she would like to have after her mother died.

Another person said she had a similar experience with colored dots. Every sibling marked what they wanted and, if two or more people claimed something, they had to work it out ...

Death Cafe write up: Annville Free Library’s Second Death Cafe

Posted by BLLLINK on Dec. 2, 2017, 6:24 p.m.


This second Death Cafe of the year at the Annville Free Library was another intimate setting that attracted 10 people who didn't know one another before today.

Following the two hour conversation with cake, coffee, tea and chocolates, the mutual trust and, yes, friendship was special.

Everyone was so glad they came and they'll look for the next one.

As usual, we had a wonderful meeting with very interesting conversation. Those attending included a member of clergy, two death doulas, a pet bereavement specialist, a nurse, and others from all walks of life.  Some of the topics were how the lack of community and connections contribute to difficulties around death and dying, the ethical issues around suicide and assistance in dying, and how realizing the inevitability of death can help make life so much more full and meaningful. Looking forward to December's meeting!
