About this Death Cafe
This Death Cafe will be held virtually via ZOOM. To register please email the organizer Barbara ("Ara") at firstname.lastname@example.org - please type "DeathCafe Jan 19/22 registration" in the subject line of the email... I will confirm reception of your request, and add you to the invite list. I will send out the ZOOM link via email around 1pm the day of the cafe.
As with all Death Cafes, this will be a safe space to openly and non-judgmentally discuss anything related to death/end-of-life. This is not a grief support group or counselling.
The reason I host Death Cafes (and have personally participated in several DCs worldwide), is because I am passionate about supporting people to explore and express their end-of-life thoughts and wishes; and I also love facilitating group discussions... so I look forward to DC opportunities to informally and freely discuss aspects related to death in hopes the conversational exchange will help participants to increase their comprehension, comfort, and confidence in their end-of-life considerations; and it also helps me to explore/solidify my own thoughts and wishes, and obtain a broader understanding of other people's perspectives!
