Death Cafe

Death Cafe

Death Cafe is a discussion group – we welcome free-form conversation about death, whatever that means to the people in the room. There are no agendas or themes – and we are not a grief support group or educational meeting. Nothing is sold, taught or recruited for. We simply gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.

End of Life Yoga Certification

End of Life Yoga Certification

If you enjoy yoga – and you’re curious to learn how closely this beautiful practice can be incorporated at end of life, don’t miss our 60-hour ABODE End of Life Yoga Training. We’ve designed it specifically for yoga teachers and therapists, chaplains, hospice care workers or anyone who wants to serve the dying.

In fact, our training is for anyone who is drawn to the Death Doula or Death Cafe movements, for anyone who wants to bring a deeper understanding to their own end of life journey, or who wants to explore the whole process of serving people who are at the end of life, and people who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

An ABODE tradition! Our meditation format includes a brief reading chosen by the week’s facilitator to prepare us for 30 minutes of silent meditation. It could be a poem, a Scripture from any tradition or a reflection on a topic that opens us to deeper contemplation of awareness and love. After meditation, we follow with a conversation based on the reading or meditation. RSVP by sending an email to Edwin Sasek.
