About this Death Cafe


I was raised to fear death — and then I faced three cancer diagnoses. Each one was an incredible gift and opportunity to learn to embrace life. Each one helped me to become less afraid of dying.


I am hosting a monthly death cafe to support and foster a heart-filled conversation about something that happens to all of us. It is my hope that by embracing death as a beautiful and natural part of life we will die better ... that we will die with grace, ease and peace.




As a result of my personal experiences around death and dying, I feel called to change the way people view death. I'm a self-appointed public relations person for death. Why? Because "how we think about death matters. It affects how we live our lives and how we relate to one another. Awareness of death is the secret of life." — Judi Lief


All our death cafes will be held via Zoom. We encourage partcipants to show up with a curious mind, an open heart — and a beverage and dessert of choice (preferably cake or cupcake)!
