This Death Cafe takes place today
About this Death Cafe
I love people, I love talking with them, learning about them and being a support.
To share the Death Cafe with the community seems like a natural thing to do. With my life experience I feel like I am of value to humanity.
I am accepting donations for the rent I have to pay.
About Cheryl Opie
I am a mother of 2 girls and a Grandmother of 5, both boys and girls. I am in my wisdom years. Been married to the same man for 51 years...amazing eh?
I have been teaching a creative, healing, soulful painting process for the past 18 years and hope to continue doing it for as long as I live. www.paintingfromwithin.net When teaching this process we discuss all aspects of life, including death. We also do Gentle Breath Meditation.
I have done cancer support work for 30 years, so am used to talking to people about death. There are always people in my painting class who are unwell.
As I am aging and friends and family are dying, I have become more interested in the process and the options available.
I belong to an over 70's group where we discuss these things openly and without fear and we have fun. So when I discovered Death Cafe it seemed like a natural thing for me to do.
