About Tawnya Musser:

Greetings!  I am on a big bold journey, following my heart into the world of death and dying.  I am a Home Funeral Guide and End-Of-Life Doula, also known as a Death Doula.  I strive to foster more open conversations about death and dying in my community, and the world at large. 


What brings you to Death Cafe?

 I’ve found value in every Death Café I’ve attended in other cities.  It is important to me to help bring Death Café into my own community, closer to home.  I have followed the death positive movement for several years (see link for more information on death positivity.) Over those years, I’ve grown more and more passionate about advocating for families to know their rights, and to take the care of their loved ones back into their own hands, when they are willing and able. My family had a home funeral for my late brother, and it was so beautiful.  It really hit home how important it is for people to know what options are available them. http://www.orderofthegooddeath.com/resources/death-positive-movement


What would you like your legacy to be?

 

Overall, I want people to remember me for giving a damn...because, I do.  I care.  I care about people, my community, how we live and how we die.  I care how we do death as a society, because that also informs how we choose to live. Memento Mori. "Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others-the stories they share about you." Shannon Alder 


Thoughts for sharing:

"All interest in disease and death is only another expression of interest in life." -Thomas Mann

It is imperative that we acknowledge and honor the very real, and very hard-at-times fact that death is inevitable.  Giving that reality a voice allows us to live our lives to the fullest.  In our death denying and death phobic culture, Death Cafes provide a welcome place for those of us who need a forum to have candid conversations.  Regarding life (and death) Ram Dass said “We are all just walking each other home.”
