Book that had meaning to me

On Life After Death by Elisabeth Kubler Ross

I can say that some of what she has written about has been experienced by me and/or by my close family members. Dr. Elisabeth Kubler Ross worked with dying patients most of her career.


Meeting Places to Discuss Death: Death Cafe

There are both real person meetings as well as online meetings



Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'. A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

 Death Cafes are always offered:

- On a not for profit basis

- In an accessible, respectful and confidential space

- With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action

Death Cafe meetings to help create an awareness of death and appreciation of life more. We meet in a safe, friendly atmosphere, with beverages and cake. And encourage people to freely talk about their experiences with the death of others. As well as their thoughts about their own death.

Dr. Christopher Kerr speaks at a 2015 TEDx event Buffalo, New York.

Dr. Christopher W. Kerr is the Chief Medical Officer at The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care, where he has worked since 1999. His background in research has evolved from bench science towards the human experience of illness as witnessed from the bedside, specifically patients’ dreams and visions at the end of life. Although medically ignored, these near universal experiences often provide comfort and meaning as well as insight into the life led and the death anticipated.
