About this Death Cafe
Hey, Northern Beaches! Want to have an online chat about death and dying? The objective of a “Death Café” is to increase awareness of death by learning how to discuss it more openly and freely and to experience how this awareness enhances our everyday well-being. Join us for a thoughtful discussion about this last stage of life and share your experiences, thoughts, and fears about death in a relaxed setting over a cup of coffee or tea (or whatever you choose in the comfort of your home). Death Cafés are very casual discussion groups open to those of all faiths and spiritual traditions; there is no specific secular or spiritual agenda. Death Cafés are not grief support or counselling sessions.
About Sarah Wilkinson & Anne Kubiak
Hello, I’m Sarah, a recent transplant to the beautiful Northern Beaches. I’m an End of Life Doula, American born, married-to-an-Aussie, baptised Catholic, confirmed Anglican, ordained lay Buddhist minister who’s living between Avalon, the States, and Hong Kong (though not recently!). I’ve had a longstanding interest in death and dying since my early 20s when I had a near-death experience that forever changed my life. I hope to learn more about your concerns, fears, and relationship to death so that I may more effectively process my own and work with others.
Hello there, I am Anne, an End of Life Doula. I have had many different roles throughout my life, but I have always been drawn to helping those who are facing end of life. It's just something in my DNA – to offer compassion and be of service to others. I am really looking forward to meeting up and supporting others in my local community. I am a great listener and hope to help you feel more comfortable talking about your own personal death experiences over a cuppa.
