Death cafe (virtual)

Location visible to members

Join us for a virtual death cafe. We will introduce the idea of a death café and explore ideas/beliefs around death, open to new/all perspectives. There is no set topic - the conversation flows based on what attendees wish to discuss. The intent of this café is not to be oppressing or to overwhelm with grief, but rather to cultivate appreciation of life and the time we have been gifted. The idea is that becoming more comfortable with death and de-stigmatizing it, we can become less fearful and live fuller, more appreciative lives. You will not be expected to share during the meeting. You are welcome to bring a prayer or poem to share at the café. This event is free. Size is limited so please register early, by emailing me: [masked] within 24 hrs prior to the event. I will send you a link for our zoom meeting the day of the event. Suggested donation of $10/household to The Resiliency Institute (they are a non profit and allow us to use their zoom account, which is not free; www.theresiliencyinstitute.net/ )
