Death Cafe profile for Joe Witherspoon


Location: United States

About Joe Witherspoon:

I am a local Bay Area resident, world pilgrim and student of the Humanities. As a professional, I am a business owner and Community Advisor at Skylawn Memorial. Spiritual and grounded. Happy to help. 


What brings you to Death Cafe?

Like us all, death has long been a fascination. Why death, how death, after death, when death, what death? At age 50, death has come to seem like an old friend. I'm in the "death industry" now, working for a cemetery and volunteering for Stanford as a Spiritual Care minister. Death brings us all to a state of groundedness and that is worth considering. 


What would you like your legacy to be?

To be known as a pilgrim, explorer, seeker, walker, entrepreneur, lover. 


Thoughts for sharing:

from Queen Mab, Percy Bysshe Shelley

How wonderful is Death,
Death, and his brother Sleep!
One, pale as yonder waning moon
With lips of lurid blue;
The other, rosy as the morn
When throned on ocean’s wave
It blushes o’er the world;
Yet both so passing wonderful!

It's important to me that we think about death and prepare ourselves for the inevitable, both on a sprititual and emotional level, but also a financial and practical level ...
