About this Death Cafe

These discussions allow people to release emotions they have bottled up out of fear of burdening family and friends. It provides an opportunity to connect with other people, find meaning in life and feel inspired to move on, and treat people with kindness. My mind is just constantly blown by the real life experiences that people have had. It makes you just feel so incredibly close to other people and it allows me to serve my community, which is something that’s fulfilling. :)

About Sarah Thompson


Searchingfor something to help with intense grieving after my mother died, I came across an ad for the free Doulagivers Level 1 End of Life Doula training. That was two years ago, now my qualifications include Certified Death Doula, certified in elder care, estate document preparation, peace of mind planning, forgiveness support, recognized by InElda, registered medicine woman with the New Haven Native American Church, ordained minister with AMM, and a registered notary.


I am beginning my career as a pioneering Death Doula, a term derived from Ancient Greek (δούλα) for 'female slave', meaning a trained professional who provides expert guidance for the service of others and who supports another person (the doula's client) through a significant experience.


I have discovered that doctors and nurses sometimes lacked the time or foresight to thoroughly explain to patients what their options are beyond the immediate need and how to cope. I coach my clients in navigating the issues that arise with old age and end of life situations.
