What do we gain when we talk about death and listen to our neighbors on that scary subject?
Death Cafes are informal gatherings in public places where people meet to share their ideas–and fears–about death and dying. Since the idea debuted in London 17 years ago, they have spread worldwide, and now number in the thousands. Beginning on Friday, there will be one more, this one at the Sebastopol Area Senior Center. Bruce Robinson offers a preview.
The new Death Cafe at the Sebastopol Area Senior Center will hold its first session on Friday afternoon, Jan. 19, from 3:30 to 5. Additional sessions are planned for the third Friday of each month.
