Though we know of the inevitability of death, we rarely talk about it. Triangle Death Cafe seeks to change that. A death cafe is not a support group or workshop, nor is it therapy. It is a gathering of interested people in a relaxed, accepting atmosphere, engaged in thoughtful, life-affirming conversations over food and drink. Death Cafe is now a global movement that started in Europe in 2011, dedicated to taking the taboo subject of death out of the closet. Its mission is "to increase awareness of death to help people make the most of their (finite) lives." (See more at: http://deathcafe.com .) Triangle Death Cafe is open to all lifestyles, spiritual beliefs, and faiths/religions--but no proselytizing, please. Bring your thoughts, feelings, and curiosity to the Cafe and share them with others...or just sit back and listen.
We’ll talk further about our end-of-life desires and concerns, and will put pen to paper using The Five Wishes booklets (which I have if you don’t). And as per your requests, I’ll try to arrange for a notary to join us as well.
In the meantime, give this piece by Katy Butler a read, if you haven’t already: https://www.fosters.com/news/20190304/how-to-prepare-for-good-end-of-life
