About this Death Cafe


Is death something so terrible and absurd that we are better off not thinking or talking about it? Is death such an undesirable part of our existence that we are better off acting as if it were not real? Is death such an absolute end of all our thoughts and actions that we simply cannot face it? Or is it possible to befriend our dying gradually and live open to it, trusting that we have nothing to fear? Is it possible to prepare for our death with the same attentiveness that our parents had in preparing for our birth? Can we wait for our death as for a friend who wants to welcome us home?


Henri J. M. Nouwen in the Prologue to "Our Greatest Gift: A Meditation on Dying and Caring"


All are welcome to attend, the curious as well as the knowledgeable to participate in our open discussion. For questions or further information write to Robert through this website. The meeting is of course free to all. If you so choose a small donation is welcome to help with supplies and refreshments.
