Annapolis Death Cafe XII: April Showers (Make May Flowers) [10:10-11:10 AM] maintains safe space for all to talk in small groups about their hopes, fears, awe, grief, puzzlement, & or whatever they feel about #death. Experienced Death Cafe moderators make sure that everyone can be heard from & that no one tries to convert another to his view. What arises in Death Cafe stays in Death Cafe. This is an authorized event in the International Death Cafe Movement, which originated in London. It opposes modern societies' death denialism which avoids talk about our common fate as depressing or morbid. Death Cafe enables us to look squarely at what we all face & thereby to make the most of our finite lives. IDC Motto: "We Eat Cake & Speak of Death."
There will be an optional preliminary event in Introduction to #Mindfulness & #Meditation in the Emerson Rm. 8:30-9:30 AM for meditation on #Buddhism's Five Remembrances of death, loss, and #Impermanence. There will then be a break before Death Cafe XII 10:10-11:10 AM in #UUCA's main building. In the mean time you can have a coffee break and bring your coffee with you to Death Cafe XII, where there will be cake & an introduction to the event.
