Suzanne B. O'Brien RN will host Death Cafe to help bring awareness to this taboo subject.

All of us will die, but not everyone knows how to live.

Hospice nurse and End of Life Advocate Suzanne B. O'Brien will host Boston's Very first Death Cafe on Sunday, January 26th from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Death Cafe movement has become a global phenomenon with cafes being held all over the world. Founded by Jon Underwood of London in 2011 the Death Café model was designed to create a place where people can talk about this taboo subject in a safe, nonjudgmental environment while drinking coffee and eating delicious cake. To date, there are about 455 cafés around the globe.

The New York Times covered the NYC Death Café in June 2013 .

"It has been my experience during my entire career of working with end of life patients that the simple act of having the 'conversation' about your end of life wishes and putting them in writing changes the experience for everyone involved for the better." Death Cafes allow for us to come together and explore all different options and philosophies.

The most surprising thing about the Death Cafe is how upbeat they can be. People from all different cultural and religious backgrounds come together and realize how similar we really are. Whether you are from a small village in Zimbabwe, Africa or Living in a high rise in Boston, we are all going to experience end of life for ourselves and our loved ones. How we support each other through this passage is up to us.

This event is free and is open to the public.

Space is limited. Please make reservations at Facebook fan page Suzanne B O'Brien.
