About this Death Cafe
This gathering is for an agenda-free discussion. I will begin with a sharing of some Death Cafe guidelines and check-in and end with a check-in as well but between that it will be open for those to bring whatever they want in regard to the incredibly broad and inspiring topic of death. Hopefully it is the start of ongoing connections and conversations regarding death and dying.
It is important to note that Death Cafe is not a bereavement or grief support resource but it is possible that in the process of meeting folks other resources are discovered and shared. In the Death Cafe there are no hierarchies. We all meet simply as people who are going to die. As such any persons who work around death and dying should be willing to leave their professional identity at the door.
I look forward to our conversations.
Small donations encouraged as the room rental is $25. We will meet in the Abbot Board Room. I will bring a gluten free and vegan treat. Masks are encouraged when not eating/drinking.
All are welcome to bring a drink for themselves. The room has comfortable space for 12 people (that is also a good capacity number for these types of open conversations). I hope not to turn people away but if we meet capacity I will need to.
Kay (she/they) is relatively new to the Death Cafe world but has been aware of it for years and just recently got a strong pull in the direction of learning about end-of-life care, advance directives, death rituals, memento mori, and memorials. She saw a real need/yearning in her community for connecting and talking about death/dying so she has taken the plunge and is hosting and facilitating.
