Death Cafe profile for Laavanya


Location: United States

About Laavanya:

I am a health care professional with a wide range of experience in health care from working with the elderly to mental health advocacy, awareness and education in the South Asian American community. I believe death is a sacred passage which everyone should transition to with the utmost grace and love. Yet, we live in a society which ignores the very last part of our journey on Earth. I feel Death Cafe is safe space to have important conversations about death and dying.


What brings you to Death Cafe?

We live in a society which denies the reality of death. I feel Death Cafe is a safe space to have important conversations about death and dying. I especially hope to encourage people to share their own feelings and opinions about death in a non-judgemental and compassionate space.


What would you like your legacy to be?

That I have touched even one life in a meaningful way. 


Thoughts for sharing:

If you indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life. For life and death are one even as the sea and river are one.

Khalil Ghibran
