Death Cafe profile for Ruth Boydell


Location: Australia

About Ruth Boydell:

Having had my own brush with mortality in 2017 I have been reading, studying and learning more about death and dying and consequently living.

Completed a hospital based non-religious pastoral care course - to support myself and others seeking our spiritual selves.

I provide compassionate care for those nearing the end of life, as a death doula, in my own home.

I support increased community awareness of end of life options.

As a member of the Threshold Choir I offer my voice to those on the threshold.


What brings you to Death Cafe?

Having discovered myself as mortal I am exploring the edges of consciousness, spirit, and end-of-life experiences.

What an exploration this is! Thanks to all those willing to join the search for purpose among other treasures.


What would you like your legacy to be?

To support a more enlightened humanity, particularly for those of us nearing the end of life.


Thoughts for sharing:

"We are all just walking each other home."

30th September 2017

We had 10 women arrive for this cafe. The conversation was lively and passionate regarding preparation for end of life - what is our list of 'to-dos'; what are some worthwhile films to watch; why we are all at this gathering and can we have more. The time seemed to fly. 

Our conversations went on over time and there seemed to be great interest in further cafes. 

Looks like we might try a regular cafe.
