We had such a beautiful location- This chapel is full of Tiffany Windows!The woodworking and all the touches were exquisite. It was a cool-ish day, but we  satt farthest from the open door. We wanted that huge wood door to be open to welcome any late comers.

We ended up just making one small discussion group of 5. It was nice to be so intimate as we had Jen Ward, the librarian from Bach Branch for Albany, who would start hosting her own Death Cafes.  So Carla and Kate (the current co-hosts) could answer her concerns of what a host does and doesn’t do. We also ...

We had a nice group of 13 folks gathered in Guilderland Library's largest room. As usual, we sat in groups of 4. People were so involved in their group talks we could hardly break away to share with the others some of what each group discussed. We had people volunteer to scout locations, help host the next one. We even have a couple that professionally designed our flyer for our next one on Monday evening - September 23rd Death Cafe!

We had such a wonderful group on a Tuesday night - Feb 26th starting at 6:30pm for my Death Cafe at Delmar Reform Church. All but two folks were first timers. It was a great mix of folks- from many professions and ages. This included two young ladies, who shared many things including one shared part of her poem.  Lots of thought provoking ideas were shared and lead to great discussions. Thanks to all that attended.
 
There are several other folks hosting Death Cafes in this area, so do check with your zip code on this site.

On November 13th , we meet this time at The Community Room of The Bethlehem Public Library from 6:30-8pm. We had 19 folks there and this time meet in groups of 4 at tables. One person told me they enjoyed the 4 instead of 6 we had in groups last time.We again had many new faces and nearly half were returning friends.

When the groups  spokesperson shared the topics had been:

The After Life can be whatever you imagine it to be and what you bring to it.

It is not abnormal to often  think and talk about death.

After death communications and messages.

How children process ...

On Saturday, September 29th at 1pm,we met at Albany Rural Cemetery ’s Chapel. Of the 19 people who attended, approximately half had never attended a previous Death Cafe in Albany, NY.  Several folks brought cookies and donuts to share. The popularly-requested recipe for co-host Kate’s homemade cookies was quickly shared with our e-mail list. After splitting into three small groups with no agenda for about an hour, we came back together as a group and one person gave a summary about each group’s conversation. One group discussed the evolution of their religious beliefs, and how that impacts their beliefs about afterlife. Another spoke of the ...

Death Cafe Albany met on July 10th from 6-7:30 at the Albany Public Library on Washington Avenue.  It was the first Death Cafe hosted by Kate and Carla. (Melissa moved to California, and we thank her for getting things started in Albany!)  

We had a wonderfully diverse group of 15 people, mostly new folks who had not previously attended.  We met as a large group, with discussion topics ranging from factors that influence how people react (sudden vs. expected death, age of the griever, etc.), the "stages of grief" (and how they are not prescribed nor predictable), to the impact on the community in the aftermath of ...
