About this Death Cafe
Why a Death Cafe? Because talking about death can help us consider our mortality and how we have been living and how we want to live. My hope is that conversations about death will help us accept it is a natural part of life and does not need to be feared.
To encourage more heartfelt sharing and communication, the larger overall group witll be divided into smaller groups for the first part of our gathering. Everyone will then come together again so the themes of the disccussion in each group can be shared for the benefit of all
About Marie Stycos

I have a passion for assisting people to mark, celebrate and move through life events. This is especiall so when it comes to end-of-life transitons. After 47 years as a nurse working primarily in Adult Critical Care Units and Emergency Rooms, I am very much aware of what patients and families can experience when one's physical being is failing.
From my personal and nursing experiences with death, I have learned that those that have acknowledged their mortality, have considered its possibilities and have prepared for their eventual someday death - struggle less at the end. I have also learned that when communications are clear, families struggle less as well.
