With each new Death Cafe, I have recently expected to finally arrive at a saturation point. That nothing new will be discussed or I will be frankly bored. Last night was a small group of regulars, bringing this sense to the surface yet again.
Instead of feeling stale or boring, I felt like the group settle into a deeper and more vulnerable space that explored familiar terrain with a more penetrating gaze. This gives me hope that not only do Death Cafes serve a purpose, but the online format is not a hinderance. I hope more people continue to join our conversations and we change the narrative around death in our culture
