About this Death Cafe
Everybody dies. Yet we do not talk about it. On Sunday, February 11, UUCB will host a Death Cafe: a chance to be together to eat cake and talk about death. Why? We know that talking about death to the point that we normalize it as a part of life helps reduce anxiety about our own death and the death of loved ones – and helps us live more fully.
Death Cafe was started by Swiss sociologist and anthropologist Bernard Crettaz who organized the first Cafe Mortel in 2004 wich was adapted and developed by Jon Underwoodin2011. Since then, Death Cafes have been held all over the world, some on a monthly basis, some online, all with the same intent: to normalize the undoubtedly normal fact of our own mortality.
It’s important to note that Death Cafe is NOT counseling, nor is it a grief support group. It is simply a place to talk, and listen, about our thoughts and feelings around death.
Please register to help us prepare well.
Sponsored by the 2023 cohort of Inner Work of Age.
