About this Death Cafe

Our intention is to open a conversation that will continue long after the cafe closes, a conversation about death & dying.

We believe that talking about death and embracing your own mortality can be a life defining & enhancing experience.

Joan Halifax says in 'Being with Dying',

"Life threatening illness calls us to a place - metaphorically a desert or mountain peak - where, as we sit, the hard wind of reality strips away all the trappings of life, like so much clothing, makeup, and accessories. We are left naked, only "me" with my in-breath and out-breath in this moment, here and now"
