“Death is psychologically as important as birth, and like it, is an integral part of life.” ~ C.G. Jung
Let’s gather together to talk about death. Not to grieve, not to seek therapeutic support, but simply to have a group-directed discussion with the broad intention to increase our awareness of death. Perhaps that greater awareness might help us to deeply appreciate our lives right now, right here.
Death Cafes around the world give us all, young and old, an opportunity to talk about death without any agenda, advice, objective, or conclusion. We agree to respect each other’s viewpoints and confidentiality. Donations to the Jung Center are welcomed. You can find the Zoom link in the description above. The two discussion dates do not imply a progression of any theme, and so you may attend one, or both, sessions.
Covid has brought death very close to many of us. A Death Café may help us to become open to more acceptance and curiosity. Let’s refrain from trying to outsource death. It belongs to each of us, intimately.
Martha Spruce, founder of Hearts & Hands Reiki, has been practicing and teaching Reiki in the mid-coast area for over 25 years. During that time, she has also cared for terminally ill people as a certified hospice volunteer and homecare provider. She has also volunteered as a certified pastoral chaplain at Mid Coast Hospital. Being with people who are dying has helped her to learn what death might give as well as what it takes.
