Death Education and Conversation

By on December 9, 2019 in Events

All are invited for an evening of death education and conversation on Monday, December 16th, 2019 from 6:30-8:30pm at the First Congregational Church (near the Falmouth Village Green). The one-hour Death Cafe, an hour of faciliated conversation in small groups, will be followed by the education program. The sessions are distinct, and folks may attend either portion.

Death Cafe, 6:30-7:30pm is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes, nor affiliated religious organization. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session. “The desire is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their finite lives.

Education, 7:30-8:30pm, Grief and Gratitude During the Holidays for those mourning the loss of a loved one. The Death Cafe facilitation team will provide attendees with different ways to engage with the loss of a loved one. All are invited to participate by reading poetry about loss though death, lighting a candle and speading the names of those not here, and bringing items for a remembrance table by displaying photos or objects commemorating special people we are grieving.

Events are free and all are welcome. Refreshments provided. Donations are always gratefully accepted.

Death Cafe is an international movement started in Europe to encourage people to talk about the taboo subject of death. It is simply a gatherng in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere with refreshments allowing us to share a respectful, engaging, thought-provoking and life-affirming conversation on any topics related to death, dying and mortality.
