We’ll discuss how death is showing up in each of our lives, from birth, through spring, summer, fall, winter, to end-of-life.

Our café is not a place for coaching or advice but simply to listen and share. Cori Levin and Kate Cavett, both End of Life Doulas, will be facilitating the conversation. Our purpose is to increase awareness of our relationship with death. Talking about death in an open and vulnerable way and sharing uncomfortable things in a safe space. This event is open to the public, there are no fees. We welcome your authentic curiosity, vulnerability, your wiliness to explore conversations around death.

 Online Death Cafe (July)

Evaluation Summary

 Evaluations:  3 submitted

 Attendees:  1 facilitator, 10 attendees

 

 

Our July Death Cafe continued to be a global experience with some of our participants bringing experiences from around the world.

Four people attended this Death Cafe.One person hadn't been before. The topics we discussed were wide ranging from cot death, death during pregnacy, the Euthenasia Law, prefered method of disposition of remains, writting ones biography for one's children after death  and so on. I find that when the group is small people talk more intimately and describe their personal experiences more.
