I finally did it! I have decided to host Mebane's FIRST "Death Cafe!" Death Cafes are popping up all over the country, having started in Europe back in 2004. Finally, a taboo topic is gaining ground and people are finding it "normal" to sit around and discuss all aspects of death and dying.
I would LOVE to change how we as a society do death. I will die a happier person knowing I contributed in some small way to this change. Rather than thinking and feeling morbidly, "Oh God, one day I'm going to die," wouldn't it be grand to be able to say, with awe and wonder, "Oh God, one day I'm going to die!" Death Cafes are one way to start the conversation.
When we are conscious of our own mortality, we live more fully.
Learn more about this incredible movement at deathcafe.com.
I'll write more after our first get-together on July 23!
