In the last meeting we talked more about avoiding death, and why we need to die. We had some healthcare professionals that talked about disease and the tragedy of dying of some that are very avoidable. We meandered over a number of different topics.

I want to past the details for my second Death Cafe. The only place I can find to do that is on the "Host a Death Cafe" form. I thought that was for craeting it the first time. Or, do I just change the address every month? - Heather Austin North

We had a diverse crowd, of approximately 12 people, attend the first Austin Death Cafe - North meeting at Monkey Nest Cafe. There were a number of "industry" people; hospice chaplains, hospice nurses, green funeral directors and green funeral alliance members. We had people that wanted to talk about how people feel about death and those that shared their experiences with death.  Our first meeting seemed to lean towards the technical, but there is only so much "You should request a LOT of death certificates" logistic information that can be shared. Our next meeting will be June 4th at 3pm, Monkey Nest on Burnet.
