About this Death Cafe

At a Death Cafe, we drink tea and coffee, eat cake, and discuss death. The aim is to increase awareness of death to help ourselves make the most of our (finite) lives. What's on your mind about death and dying?


In this group discussion we will cover whatever topics or questions you bring to the group.


Tea and desserts will be provided.


Please email me at

to RSVP as space is limited at Rhizome. 


***This is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.***


Rhizome is a quick walk from the Takoma Park Metro on the Red Line. There is also plenty of street parking (which should be free at that time of day) and there is a small parking lot behind Rhizome. 



The Death Cafe is a free event. RhizomeDC is a nonprofit community arts space, and donations to the space are welcome (but not required).

About Sarah, Founder of Death Positive DC

In an effort to bring the death positive movement to the DC-area, I founded Death Positive DC in May of 2017.


Death Positive DC is the first organized death positive group in the Washington, DC-area (covering DC, northern VA, and parts of Maryland near DC). Through Death Positive DC, I work to promote conversations about death and connect people around this topic through social media and in-person events.

I have been hosting death cafes around the DC-area since November of 2016. 

One of my goals is to normalize death as a part of life and help people become more comfortable thinking and talking about death. I believe that by acknowledging and talking about death, we can live our lives more fully.   

In the fall of 2016, I took the end-of-life doula training workshop with INEDLA and I later did some training in supporting women through pregnancy and infant loss with the Institute for the Study of Birth, Breath, and Death.
