About Marcel A Ettesvold:

 I have always had a curiosity surrounding death and mortality. I minored in philosophy in college and have done vast amounts of research in my personal time over the years. I also bring years of experience dealing with death in many capacities (family, friends, clients, aquantences) and have been an objective participant in many conversations. I am a professional mental health counselor and have three years of experience facilitating groups of the Death Cafe nature and can promise a safe and healthy environment to ensure a productive conversation amongst participants. 

What brings you to Death Cafe?

I want to help bring this conversation to the forefront. It's an absolute and a driving force behind so much of what we as people do and believe and how we conduct ourselves, that it needs to be discussed. I hope to show that it is alright to talk about and help people come to terms with where they are and how it all fits together. 

What would you like your legacy to be?

I hope that I can help ease the way for those I encounter. 

Thoughts for sharing:

The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?
