A chat about death over coffee and cake might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it could get people talking about a subject that is still taboo for many. Join us for a facilitated conversation as we explore this taboo taboo topic together.
Death Cafe is made possible through the Douglas and Josephine County Older Adult Behavioral Health Specialists. This event is welcome and affirming to adults of all races, belief systems, gender identities, sexual orientations, ethnicities, backgrounds, country of origin and abilities. Please do not hesitate to reach out before the event if there is anything we should know to better assist or accommodate you.
A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.
Before you attend:
To make the most of our limited time, we invite attendees to reflect on these questions:
What would help you join the conversations with people you may be meeting for the first time? What would help you share your experiences and beliefs and listen to others? What has sparked your interest in attending a death cafe?
Self-care: What are some physical needs to care for before and during this meeting? Examples include having a comfortable chair, water, tea, and snacks available during the meeting. Is it helpful for you to sit, stand and/or stretch during this event? What is going to best help you?
Technical/logistical support: What logistical support can help you be more present during this event? Examples include practicing a zoom meeting with a friend, wearing headphones to help you hear over other sounds in your physical space, or checking your internet connection and strength before the event. You may enter the meeting room 15 minutes early to get technical support before the event starts.
