About this Death Cafe

As a nurse of 33 years, I've seen too many instances where people had additional suffering because they hadn't talked to their doctors, their loved ones, or even themselves about what they really wanted at the end, and this inspired me.  I've also seen unlikely healing at the end of life, and witnessed some true beauty working with the dying and  their loved ones. I believe having conversations about the reality of our mortality, the limitations of modern medicine, the maximizing of our happiness through the end rests on those conversations. And if you don't come for that please stop by for the death-by-chocolate gluten-free dairy-free cupcakes!
