Death Cafe

Created by Jon Underwood:
At a Death Cafe people talk about death over tea and cake. Over 9,500 Death Cafes have been held in over 66 countries.

✨✨TIPS FOR SERVICE ✨✨⁣
⁣
If you really TRULY want to help someone who is grieving or suffering, struggling...⁣
⁣
... DO NOT ASK THEM WHAT THEY NEED THEY DO NOT KNOW. ⁣JUST SHOW UP.
⁣
Try these ideas instead. ⁣👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻
⁣
Don’t ask...just DO. I promise you it will be deeply appreciated.⁣
⁣
As we learn to walk with grief and loss with more grace and less revulsion, I think we may even surprise ourselves with the creative and intuitive ways we may be of true service to those we love and those in need. ⁣
⁣
I hope to see you tomorrow on @ctvedmonton with @staceybrotzel at 7:20 am MST to discuss this and so much more!⁣
⁣
⁣
Walk with me won’t you? XO AR 💋

Hi all, 
So just an update on our Liverpool Death Cafes; we've now had two and set the date for our next as 29th January 2020.

I’ve posted the write-up from the last Death Cafe here: https://deathcafe.com/writeups/1389/

Also, the next one is up on the Death Cafe website here: https://deathcafe.com/deathcafe/10482/ (you can see the events on Facebook/Eventbrite : https://www.facebook.com/events/1370245189834473/ and https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/death-cafe-3-tickets-81758617225)

If you've not heard of them before, at a Death Cafe people drink tea, eat cake and discuss death. The aim is to increase awareness of death to help people make the most of their (finite) lives. It does not involve agendas or advertising. It is a discussion group rather than a grief  support or counselling session. 💀☕️🍰

It's my favourite type of day: Death Café Day! not too long ago, a gentleman from the Regent park Community reached out to us asking if we would come in and facilitate a Death Cafe at one of their weekly 'Community Conversation' events, and we were happy to oblige. It's always such an honour to be invited into communities, and asked to bring along the dialogue about dying and death - which I always remind are participants, and everybody really, is really just conversation about life and living. I'm so privileged to do the work I do, and cannot wait for another Death Cafe. The conversations are always so diverse and so enlightening and empowering for me. I always say that Death Cafés are all about the participants, it is what they bring to the table. I cannot wait to see what tonight brings. I'm truly a lucky human.

There is no single explanation for why people go unclaimed. There could be a breakdown of family ties. Sometimes, no family can be located, especially if the person doesn't live in the same place as the deceased. Something as simple as not finding family information in a person's home or phone could lead to them being unclaimed. Learn more about the tracking down of next of kin in THE UNCLAIMED DEAD, which you can now purchase in link in bio. #fenixjournalism #journalism #deathappreciation #deathpositive #seattle #kingcounty

So tonight I bit the bullet and went along to a Manchester @deathcafe and it was honestly the best thing I’ve done in regards to grieving. Having an open space to talk about death with no agenda or pressures was so nice, I think I laughed more than I cried. Death is this crazy, funny, inevitable thing and we should be talking about it more.

Don't forget to check out our newest story THE UNCLAIMED DEAD, which is now available for purchase in the link in bio! As more and more coroners deal with an increase in unclaimed, many are turning to their state legislature for guidelines. Our story found that something as simple as defining what classifies as "next of kin" and setting a deadline for how long coroners could seek them out could put a cap on these numbers increasing. #fenixjournalism #journalism #deathappreciation #deathpositive #coroners #asheville #northcarolina

‘Nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes’ - Benjamin Franklin. Yet our reluctance to discuss dying means that many people die unprepared and leave things unsaid. Kingston Borough Councillor, will talk about the rise in popularity of Death Cafes and the role they play in shaping perceptions of death and dying. .

In honor of Veteran's Day today and our newly published story THE UNCLAIMED DEAD (link in bio), we wanted to discuss how Los Angeles handles their unclaimed - some of which may include veterans. LA holds one of the largest mass burials for its unclaimed at the beginning of every December. At the last service in 2018, one woman told the Los Angeles Times she worried she might also end up alone in a mass grave. "I'm glad the county does something," she said. "These were human beings that mattered." Let us remember today the unclaimed veterans who have yet to be given a burial ceremony. #fenixjournalism #journalism #deathappreciation #deathpositive #VeteransDay #VeteransDay2019

More highlights from THE UNCLAIMED DEAD incoming (check out the link in bio to purchase and read the full story). With more and more unclaimed dead bodies winding up in municipalities across the U.S., local governments have been forced to reallocate funding to bury, cremate, and store the dead. What else can be done to handle this? What else can people do manage all the unclaimed? Read more about the story on FenixJournalism.com. #fenixjournalism #journalism #deathappreciation #deathpositive #coroner #georgia #macon #bibbcounty

Continuing with highlights from our now published story THE UNCLAIMED DEAD (link in bio), we explore how a few organizations have attempted to solve a few issues surrounding the unclaimed. There are many people willing to volunteer their time and money to those who passed without next of kin to claim them. It is a silver lining in an otherwise heartbreaking story. The Missing in America Project is one of the organizations that volunteers their resources to locating and interring unclaimed veterans' remains. #fenixjournalism #journalism #deathappreciation #deathpositive #MissingInAmericaProject #MissingInAmerica #VeteransDay #Veterans

In case you missed it, our first crowdfunded story THE UNCLAIMED DEAD is live! (Link in bio) One of the hardest things about this story was narrowing down how big the problem of the unclaimed really was. With so many counties in the country measuring unclaimed bodies in different ways, it's impossible to come up with one clear number. Those 3k+ counties in the U.S. - all of which have different definitions for "next of kin" and what makes someone "unclaimed" - aren't even required to register their county's unclaimed bodies at all. The likely number of unclaimed is undercounted by the thousands. All week, we'll be diving into some of THE UNCLAIMED DEAD's most surprising revelations. What statistics were most shocking to you? #fenixjournalism #journalism #investigativejournalism #deathappreciation #deathpositive #death
