Date: Tuesday, April 5th
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY
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 subjectsâ€“death and all the lovely conversational tangents death inspires.
â€śBecause you are so busy, you do not notice you are dying,â€ť says Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh. Thereâ€™s no better thing to do, at a Morbid Anatomy Death Cafe, than to open-endedly discuss deathâ€™s existence. Stop by the museum to converse with fellow wayfaring strangers, sip 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. First Tuesdays of every month, always six to eight p.m.
Amy Cunningham is a Brooklyn funeral director who helps families with green burials, pre-cremation services in Green-Woodâ€™s crematory chapels, home vigils and other sorts of memorials. Her blog, where she discusses these topics, can be found at theinspiredfuneral.com.
