What is a Death Café?
We are a group of people, often strangers, we gather to eat cake, enjoy tea and discuss death. It’s that simple
A Death Café is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.
A Death Café is a scheduled, non-profit get-together to escape the taboo of discussing death & dying.

We are participating in the Death Café movement, a life-affirming international social franchise started 9 years ago by Jon Underwood in London and later popularized by Lizzy Miles in the United States. Underwood developed the Death Café model based on the ideas of the Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz who, together with his anthropologist wife, studied funeral rites in their town and other cultures. When Crettaz’s wife died in 1999, he initiated meetings in local bistros to talk about death.

Death Cafes have spread quickly! As of today, there are 11552 Death Cafes in 73 countries since September 2011.

Death Café has no staff. We are run on a voluntary basis.

So, join us, your local WEST PASCO DEATH CAFE! Let’s chat… and eat delicious cake!

Free.

RSVP REQUIRED. No walk-in’s.

Not on ZOOM.

It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.

A Death Cafe is a scheduled, non-profit get-together to escape the taboo of discussing death & dying.

Death Cafes are still somewhat unusual because death has always been a subject that people rarely to discuss… until someone gives you a comfortable place to do so.

CANCELED: What is a Death Doula?

Doulagivers: A WORLDWIDE MOVEMENT

Doulagivers is the New Specialized Area of Non-Medical Health Care that is being embraced worldwide. Death Doulas are also known around the world as: end of life coaches, soul midwives, transition guides, death coaches, doula to the dying, end of life doulas, death midwives, and end of life guides.

WHAT DO DEATH DOULAS DO?

Death Doulas are people who support people in the end of life process, much like a midwife or doula with the birthing process. It is “a new non-medical profession” that recognizes death as a sacred, natural, accepted, and honored part of life. One might say that death midwifery is to hospice palliative care as birth midwifery is to obstetrics. Death Doulas can do these services and so much more.
● Help create positive, empowering end of life plans
● Provide spiritual care, psychological and social support
● Suggest ideas for optimal physical comfort and safety
● Help plan home vigils, life reviews, obituaries, celebrations of life and more.
● Educate patients and families on the new and progressive options of home wakes and natural green burials.

Come for this FREE presentation and to receive a Peace of Mind Planner. Meet Cathy & ask questions.

“Death is simply a shedding of the physical body like the butterfly shedding its cocoon. It is a transition to a higher state of consciousness where you continue to perceive, to understand, to laugh, and to be able to grow.” ~

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
