The Friendly and Fearless Tucson Death Cafes offer relaxed, informal and safe spaces for conversation about dying and death, with intentions for living more fully while we are here. Death Cafes are part of a global movement “to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of our (finite) lives”.
Coming up on the first Tuesday of every month — so the next one is on July 1st * (correction: September 2nd), 6 to 8 p.m. at Big Moe’s Coffee Emporium at the Metal Arts Village, 3290 N. Dodge Blvd. (north of NE corner of Ft. Lowell St.) Moe’s is the only coffee shop in that complex of metal artisans, in suite #H.
* Call ahead as their FB page is saying that they are on summer hiatus. Just got confirmation that the next Death Cafe is September 2nd. So save the date.
Please RSVP to Kristine or Cindy at 520-329-3724.
Carolyn’s note: This concept of death shouldn’t be too foreign to the Southwest/Mexican culture which embraces El Dia de Los Muertos as a time of remembrance and celebration of lives. But it is a scary idea for those who are in denial that we all will pass away someday. I still hear people saying “IF I die…”. That’s not too realistic as all people do die someday, even my oldest, 101 year old aunt back in Hawaii. And some people die very young, like a friend’s daughter at age 11 in 2003. I’d like to join in this conversation to discuss why some people live to their 90’s , and others pass away as much, much earlier.
