The Death Café Comes Back to Brattleboro!
Brattleboro, Vermont . On Thursday evening, November 3rd, from 6:00pm-7:30pm, Brattleboro Area Hospice will host a Death Café at The Restless Rooster, at 134 Elliot Street, in Brattleboro. This free event is part of an international movement begun in Europe (www.deathcafe.com ), and is dedicated to taking death out of the closet in order to discuss it publicly.
Previous events that have taken place throughout Windham County have been met with tremendous praise. People have reported them as comfortable, supporting a full range of emotions – from tears to raucous laughter, easier than anticipated, energy charged, inspirational and fun.
A Death Café is not a support group, a counseling session, or even a workshop. It is simply a gathering of people sharing respectful, thought provoking, life affirming conversation about living and dying in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere while enjoying warm beverages and delectable treats.
The public is welcome and encouraged to attend, but space is limited to 30 people. RSVP’s are required! People are asked to arrive promptly, as doors to the event will close at 6:15pm.
Brattleboro Area Hospice is an independent, community-based, non-profit volunteer organization that provides grassroots, volunteer-staffed programs to supplement and provide alternatives to the professional services utilized by dying and grieving community members. The home office is located at 191 Canal Street in Brattleboro, however we serve all in Windham County. Visit www.brattleborohospice.org for more information.
