What we're about

Welcome to Death Café New York City!
Until we're safe again, join us virtually to talk about the stuff we can't just yet with family, friends and co-workers. Let's lighten each other's souls (hence the photos of people laughing, sometimes for the first time in months)—all without facilitation, agendas or guest speakers.

Also ....look at our:

> Brain-sharpening stuff on our Facebook page

> •  articles/ videos  • upcoming talks/readings/conferences • cultural excursions led by your host  

> ***Meetup email ***is rare; strictly for important announcements and member interviews so you'll never be inundated.

> ***Meetup "Pages"  ***are deep and rich. Two of the most popular pages:

> • Soundbites from Our Tables: unforgettable archived conversations

> • Comforting Books We Recommend: for every age, gender, mindset at every stage of life and loss

What makes our Death Café the real deal? 
• We follow the cafe model concept of the Swiss sociologist, Bernard Crettaz, and Death Café founder Jon Underwood: to liberate conversations about death from "tyrannical secrecy." It's democracy at its finest.
•  It's BWOYM: Bring What's On Your Mind.
•  Returning members come so often they become co-hosts. That's what makes our newbies feel welcome and understood. We're also delighted when members continue their conversations offline.
