  • For those who had one handy, we lit candles then sat in silence to honor and remember the lives and deaths of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People Of Color). “We will change this world.”

Hello everyone,

I hope you are staying well, physically and mentally. Thank you to those who joined the conversations during the June 10th Death Café – Hillsborough (DC-H) – our third Zoom call! We packed it with information and learned new things! Using Zoom has changed our dynamic yet it also allowed some new people from far away places to join us!

There has been a marked increase in “Virtual Death Cafés” worldwide! This is not only due to the fact we can’t meet in person but also because more people are seriously contemplating their mortality and thus are more willing to discuss death and dying. Information ...

Hello Death Positive People! Thank you to those who joined the conversations at the March 11th Death Café – Hillsborough (DC-H). We enjoyed wonderful food too – a big “Thank You” to the folks who helped clean up! My apologies this summary took a few days longer than anticipated. Supporting my friends (and creating Legacy projects with them) whose 25-year-old daughter was killed last week in a car accident took priority. Information about the next DC-H, plus others in our area, follows a key-points summary of our 3/11 meeting.

Thank you to those who came to the first-of-the-year January 8th Death Café – Hillsborough (DC-H) which included ELEVEN NEW people adding to our Death Café’s conversations! Due to there no longer being a Hillsborough restaurant with the space to accommodate our group, this Death Café morphed into a community potluck that meets at a small house in a neighborhood. Thank you for the fantastic food this time too, folks! One of the feedback/evaluation forms received (thank you to those who filled one in!) suggested coordinating what food is brought. I do not have the additional time to do that, plus our ...

Greetings, Death Positive People!
 
This Death Café – Hillsborough (DC-H) 2/13 summary was a bit delayed due to the need for finding another meeting location. Pueblo Viejo, where we’ve been gathering since October, is having to relocate (they weren’t given much notice and thus neither was I). Besides there not being a guarantee they’ll be re-opened across the street by mid-March, I am not convinced the new dining area will suit our needs. When they are open again, I will go by to survey. In the meantime, I have searched, called, visited, and checked websites for nearly a dozen options.
 
{For those of you curious ...

Our January 9th Death Café – Hillsborough (DC-H) was a positive and stimulating way to start off 2019!  What a great group of 16 interesting folks! Thank you to those who came. Below is a summary of our discussions (links included, different subjects marked with an ‘*’) followed by a couple of relevant events, then details about the next DC-H on 02/13/2019.

Here are some of the many questions asked that we explored: *Geri asked if any had felt the presence of, or seen signs from, someone who died that you had known; *Heather asked if anyone had had a dream in which ...

Our December 12th Death Café – Hillsborough (DC-H) was a wonderful group discussion – Thank you to those who came and contributed! We delved into several topics, asked questions, and shared some of our experiences. It was quite a philosophical Death Café! Below is a brief summary about our third event (different subjects marked with an ‘*’), followed by details about the next DC-H on 01/09/2019.

*We each participated in providing two or three words that describe our attitude about death. They included the following: open, accepting, curious, prepared, reluctant, ambivalent, respect, community, and “FOMA” fear of missing out (on what happens in the world you lived in ...

Greetings, Deathlings!

Our November 14th Death Café – Hillsborough (DC-H) was a superb success – Thank you for coming! Fifteen attendees was a really good turnout and represented the most diverse range of ages I have seen at a DC yet, with the youngest ones being 9 and 15! Wonderful! Let’s continue to open up the discussions about death with everyone. Below is a brief summary about our second event, followed by details about the next DC-H on 12/12.

 

This is a very basic summarization mentioning many (yet not all) of the topics we talked about: as a fun exercise, we wrote down a few of our ...
