“Death Cafés” are open-ended, open-hearted, open-minded conversations about death and dying. Yours. Your loved ones’. Everyone’s.
We will each die. We have known others who have already died. There is death all around us – it is the one true constant, and truth, about life. Yet we almost never talk about it. And certainly, not in “polite company.” Death Cafés offer us a chance to have that conversation – politely, in polite company. Compassionately, in compassionate company. There is no particular agenda. In a Death Café, we do not gather to judge any type of experience or plan related to death. We don’t gather to choose any particular path. We simply gather to create space for one another to share, openly and honestly, about what is – or should be – one of the most important topics in our lives.
Oh, and did we mention the cake? At a Death Café, you can have your cake and eat it, too. You can have your tea, and drink it, too. Both – along with serious, heartfelt (and sometimes even humorous) conversation – are integral parts of a Death Café.
