About this Death Cafe

We feed you:  Death Cafe New York City meets the third Wednesday of every month at a Moroccan restaurant where mint tea and vegetarian couscous stands in for tea and cake.

We seat you: at tables of four - just the right size to open up, be present or chime in to a neighboring table of four. 

About Nancy Gershman

NANCY GERSHMAN is creative arts practitioner and the developer of Dreamscaping, an imaginal and art-based practice which she has used with individuals and groups for more than a decade.  Presenting her work internationally to professionals in thanatology, expressive arts and art therapy, she also works in a supervisory role, training therapists in the use of Dreamscaping for grief and loss.  She is currently completing a book for therapists, "The Art of Dreamscaping in Grief and Loss: Co-Creating Healing Realities" to be published by Routledge in 2019.  Previously, she has authored chapters in Robert A. Neimeyer’s Techniques of Grief Therapy (Routledge, 2012, 2016), and the Annals of American Psychotherapy (2010) with Jenna Baddeley, PhD.  For her work as a memory artist at Visiting Nurse Service of NY, she was featured as NY1’s “New Yorker of the Week” (2016).  Dreamscaping with the eating-disordered clients of art psychotherapist Lauren Lazar Stern led to a traveling exhibition (2013) at New York University, University of Rochester and the University of Chicago.  Gershman succeeds Audrey Pellicano, who opened the first Death Cafe in New York City back in 2012.
