Green-Wood’s Death Café continues throughout the spring and summer. Each evening, in small groups, participants share their thoughts on death and dying in a space where they can feel comfortable talking about this universal, but rarely discussed, topic. The Death Café is inspired by centuries-old European salons where people gathered informally to discuss philosophical, political, or scientific ideas. The first Death Café was started by British entrepreneur Jon Underwood in 2010 as a way to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.” To date, over 5,000 of these meetings have taken place in countries around the world.
Green-Wood’s death educator Amy Cunningham, an independent funeral director, leads the Death Café. Light refreshments are served. Reservations are recommended.Buy tickets/get more info now
