About the event
Embrace the unconventional this Friday the 13th with a unique and enriching experience at our Death Cafe. Contrary to superstitions, we believe that Fridays can be a perfect time to engage in meaningful conversations about life, mortality, and the human experience.
What is a Death Cafe?
A Death Cafe is a safe and welcoming space where people from all walks of life come together to openly discuss one of the most universal aspects of our existence: death. It's not a support group, therapy session, or a morbid gathering. Instead, it's a chance to engage in deep, philosophical, and sometimes lighthearted conversations about the profound questions surrounding death and dying.
**This is a FREE event and contributions are not necessary, however, if you would like to contribute, any money received will go towards rent and refreshments for the evening.**
What to Expect:
- Thoughtful Conversations: Our facilitated discussion will encourage open dialogue about topics like end-of-life planning, cultural perspectives on death, grief, and the beauty of life itself.
- Diverse Perspectives: You'll have the opportunity to hear and share stories and viewpoints from fellow participants, fostering a deeper understanding of this shared human experience.
- Warm and Inclusive Atmosphere: Whether you're a seasoned thinker on these subjects or it's your first time delving into them, you'll find a supportive and non-judgmental environment here.
How to Participate:
Simply show up at the Metropolis Collective on Main Street in Mechanicsburg. Light refreshments (and cake) will be provided.
Participation is free, and all you need to bring is an open mind and a willingness to explore these profound topics with others. Donations will be accepted to go towards rental and refreshments.
By participating in our Death Cafe, you'll gain a deeper appreciation for life, build connections, and become better prepared for the inevitable. It's an evening dedicated to celebrating the richness of life by exploring the mystery of death.
So mark your calendar for Friday, October 13th, and let's come together to discuss life and death in a way that's both enlightening and uplifting. We look forward to sharing this meaningful experience with you.
