Death Cafe

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Speaking casually about death is taboo in many cultures, but death is part of life, and when we talk about it, we help normalize it. Normalizing death helps us better prepare for it — you can’t prepare for something you don’t acknowledge. By having conversations about death, you can help others normalize death, too, so it’s not viewed as something morbid, but something absolutely worth talking about. Death Cafes have taken place in more than 64 countries. Julie Dillon will lead the sessions. “At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.’ A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.” —From the Death Cafe website (https://deathcafe.com/) Facilitator: Julie Dillon
