Morbid Anatomy remains committed to hosting  monthly Death Cafes, salon-like gatherings  where amazing people meet to  sip wine, tea  or coffee, and converse with  fellow  wayfaring strangers on one of our  favorite  subjects–death and all the lovely conversational tangents death inspires.

“Because you are so busy, you do not notice you are dying,” says Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh. There’s no better thing to do, at a Morbid Anatomy Death Cafe, than to open-endedly discuss death’s existence. Stop by the museum to converse with fellow wayfaring strangers, sip wine, tea or coffee, and observe all the amazing conversational tangents death inspires. NY funeral director Amy Cunningham takes the reins from past convener Louise Hemmings. Wednesday, October 7, 2015, then first Tuesdays of every month subsequently (November 3, December 1), always six to eight p.m.

Amy Cunningham is a Brooklyn funeral director who helps families with green burials, pre-cremation services in Green Wood’s cRematory chapels, home vigils and other sorts of memorials. Her blog, where she discusses these topics, can be found at theinspiredfuneral.com.
