About Bill Palmer:

I'm a organizational development consultant and a coach.  Creating and sharing community is important to me, and Death Cafe is one way I can do that. It's an honor and a privilege to do so.


What brings you to Death Cafe?

Death has visited many people close to me throughout my life. What jumped out at me as a child was how people behaved at death rituals--they were gentle, compassionate, emotional, caring, kind and generous. I wondered then why those behaviors didn't show up more often.

After my mother spent time in a hospice and then died, I took a more active interest in death, becoming a hospice volunteer abd a Death Cafe leader. Both are very life affirmiong for me.

 


Thoughts for sharing:

"No one here gets out alive." --Jim Morrison

 

"Everyone unloads their own donkey." (Arabic proverb)

 

Fear of death is fear of life.

Practitioners question: Six year old child?

Posted by Bill Palmer on Oct. 20, 2013, 9:44 a.m. 8 comments


Recently, the mother of a six year old boy asked me if she could bring him to a Death Cafe I am facilitating. Curious to know how my fellow Death Cafe practitioners would respond to this request.  Thanks!
