About this Death Cafe
You were born.
And equally thrilling!
You’re going to die.
Our Mortality is certain.
Death for Fun will explore ways in which one can enter a playful conversation about Mortality. We can rest assured that one day, one sunrise will be our last. And that’s okay. And we should talk about it. In a paradigm where fear and confusion pervades the subject, it’s important to become grounded in the reality of Life and not over fret the essential transfer of existence. In fact talking about death brings one into a greater appreciation for the present moment and the breath being used to breathe this moment.
In this conversation we'll probe for new entry points into Death dialog to think: have you ever sat with yourself and pondered what events in your life that you'd prefer to flash before your eyes when The End comes? Who would you want to greet you during this transition? Is there a marching band? Are there waterfalls? Animals? New landscapes, skyscapes, mindscapes awaiting in your new life post death? Where/when do you think you'll end up? If personalizing your heaven is an option, could you imagine that? This is not an attempt to romanticize death, however it is an attempt to bring death out of fear and into peace, into life affirming discourse.
Queer Death Cafe has no agenda or inherent philosophies. This is an open discussion and is not meant as grief counseling or death/dying therapy.
Dialog will be rich. All faith and viewpoints are welcome. We look forward to gathering with you.
