A New Place to Talk About Death: A Cafe

Posted on 06/13/2013

AARP: Wanna talk about death? It seems that a lot of people do. Death cafes are popping up around the country, with more than 60 so far. You will be hearing a lot more about them. (I swear on my life.) Look, even USAToday has written about them!

At these Cafes, the conversation is about … death: Our fear of it, how we prepare for our own, what we think happens after it’s over, near-death experiences, grieving rituals and funerals. The biggest focus is exploring what participants want to do before they die and how they want to live since, another subject covered, death really is inevitable.
