This is our final Death Doula Day activity for 2023.

This end of year session in our end of life topic will be a celebration and a remembrance of an extraordinary project. Come with a dish to share for a Death Doula Day community meal, from 11am to 1pm.

Come remember the activities, the guests, the conversations we engaged in over the year and reconnect with others who have been with us one time, many times, or even haven’t been able to attend but always wanted to!

RSVP here.

What is Death Doula Days?

No one likes to talk about dying, right? We do!

Bring your curiosity, your courage, and a sense of humor as we sit around the table at the gatehouse (almost) every Saturday in 2023 to explore our worries and wonderment about mortality. Join our new death doula in residence for a weekly series of conversations and workshops about the end of life. Guests will include those who sit with the dying, care for our bodies, and help those we will leave behind. We will work on projects like organizing our digital lives, documenting our wishes, and telling our life stories. We will play games, do projects, hear musicians, meet artists, and hear from scholars who explore the end of life in their work. Our goal is to explore a ‘death positive’ way to think about our mortality. You never know who you’ll meet around the table, but each person who enters the room is a gift to the event. Cake and tea provided. Donations to our host, Historic Congressional Cemetery, are warmly encouraged.

By facing our fear of death we aim to best enjoy every breath.
