DEATH CAFE, Wellington, NZ: Sunday 15 April @ 2pm – 4pm ????
Mt Vic Hub, 24E Elizabeth Street, Mt Victoria, Wellington
Sophia Tara launched the 1st ever public Death Cafe in New Zealand, in Wellington on 30 March 2014. Monthly gatherings to exchange conversations about life and death, to ponder and celebrate the Art of Living and Dying in compassionate community. Come share your stories, thoughts, anxieties, joys and fears. Together, we’ll take death gently out of the closet and make a friend of this inevitable companion to us all.
Death Cafes allow people to talk about death, but also sparks those conversations about life. These conversations will be free from ideology and adhere to Death Cafe principles not to lead participants towards any conclusion about life, death, or life after death, apart from their own thoughts and heart-felt contributions.
We provide a safe, agenda-free space to exchange mutual dialogue about life and death over tea and cake. Enjoy an afternoon sharing and mingling with like-spirited warm-hearted people.
Our conversations will be respectful to all participants and support everyone in expressing themselves within a non-judgmental sacred space.
We welcome everyone regardless of religion, faith, creed, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability or any other humanade condition.
Facilitator, Sophia Tara, is an experienced Compassionate Communication trainer and founded the Compassionate Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and Death Cafe movements in the Wellington Region.
