At this time of social distancing and self-isolation, it is essential that we stay connected in what ways are available to us.
One way that is available for us to stay connected and strengthen our community, is to meet online. During this time of social distancing, we will have online Death Café every Monday, 1-3PM.
Among the many benefits of talking about death, participating in a Death Café helps us: (a) live in the moment, (b) appreciate life more, (c) put things in perspective, (d) identify what really matters, (e) find purpose to our losses, (f) move through our grief, (g) work through our regrets, (h) find meaning in our life, (i) bring us closer to ourselves and one another.

What is a Death Café?
The Death Café (www.deathcafe.com) is an international movement founded in England by Jon Underwood, based on the work of Bernard Crettaz. At a Death Café, people—often strangers—gather to eat cake, drink tea or coffee, and discuss death with the intention of increasing awareness of mortality and help people make the most of their finite lives.
The Death Café IS:
- a gathering with no intention of leading participants to any conclusion, product, or course of action
- an open, respectful, and confidential space where people express their views safely
- tolerant, reverent, honoring of all views with equanimity
- open to and respectful of people of all communities, ages, belief systems
- a frank discussion alongside, tea, coffee, and baked goods
The Death Café is NOT:
- a bereavement support or grief counseling setting
- for advice giving
- for people who, for whatever reason, are not able to discuss death comfortably and openly
- an opportunity to give people information about death and dying
- for profit
- for networking or promoting business, service, or products
- for handing out business cards or promotional materials
- a method of community engagement, research, or consultation
