Recurring Event Event Series: 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. Reserve your chair today: click below.

OUR ACTIVITY THIS WEEK: Playing the Death Deck game together.

Join us for a rousing game of Death Deck. Reserve your seat(s) at the table with other Death Doula Days friends. No experience necessary. Death Deck is “the new party game that lets you explore a topic we’re all obsessed with but often afraid to discuss.”
