Our community-based events are held in safe spaces where individuals can have open conversations, gather information, hear and share stories and discuss fears that are typically associated with end of life issues. These are offered in venues throughout the city and surrounding areas.
The death positive movement began in response to humanity’s desire to talk openly about dying and death. In 2011, Death cafés were created by Jon Underwood to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their ‘finite’ lives, and we support this idea. Our version of a ‘death café’ is Death over Donuts!
While each session or meeting is open to everyone, we will also be hosting targeted conversations that relative importance to your circumstance, i.e. Partner, Parent, Sibling, Child/Teen, etc. Some discussions in our sessions will be topic based, or centered around a book/film, while others will simply offer an opportunity for individuals to talk about what matters to them in that moment.
