Second Death Café To Be Held On September 16th


Brattleboro Area Hospice will once again host the Death Café. Part of an international movement that started in Europe (wwwdeathcafe.com), the Death Cafe is dedicated to taking death out of the closet in order to discuss it publicly. The free event will be held in Brattleboro on Monday, September 16, 7:00 – 9:00pm at The Works Bakery Café, 118 Main St.

People who came to the first one reported Brattleboro’s Death Café experience as comfortable, supporting a full range of emotions – from tears to raucous laughter, easier than anticipated, energy charged, inspirational and fun.

It’s not a support group, or a counseling session, not even a workshop . . . but simply community members coming together in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere, sipping drinks, munching treats and sharing respectful, engaging, thought provoking and life affirming conversation.

Event and munchies are free and everyone is welcome, but RSVP’s are a must!

Please call Cheryl Richards at Brattleboro Area Hospice to RSVP or for more info.
257-0775 or cheryl.richards@brattleborohospice.org

I applaud and support the concept of this forum - talking about death is one of the most difficult topics we will ever encounter. But, is anyone else really turned off by the name? To me it sounds anything but supportive and comforting or comfortable.
