What brings you to Death Cafe?

I want to get people having conversations about death and dying and to bring about change in the way we view death and begin to diminish the culture of death phobia. I feel talking about death openly allows people to embrace their theirs lives and mortality.


Thoughts for sharing:

 

In Blackwater Woods

Look, the trees
are turning
their own bodies
into pillars

 

of light,
are giving off the rich
fragrance of cinnamon
and fulfillment,

 

the long tapers
of cattails
are bursting and floating away over
the blue shoulders

 

of the ponds,
and every pond,
no matter what its
name is, is

 

nameless now.
Every year
everything
I have ever learned

 

in my lifetime
leads back to this: the fires
and the black river of loss
whose other side

is salvation,
whose meaning
none of us will ever know.
To live in this world

 

you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

 

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.

–Mary Oliver

Death Cafe write up: Death Cafe Glastonbury

Posted by Marisa Picardo on April 6, 2016, 3:47 a.m.

Death cafe was held upstairs in Coffee Zero on the high Street In Glastonbury. This was well attended and 23 people contributed. We sat in clusters of 4 groups and swapped around at about half time, I used a similar format to Death cafe Bristol where we started and ended with a minute silence, one feed back was that the silence could have been a bit longer. On each of the tables there were suggested conversation questions which some people used and found helpful. The converstaion seemed to flow and was quite animated and people appreciated this event was taking place. The next cafe will be in 2 ...
