Circle of Friends for the Dying actively promotes events that give people the opportunity to explore their feelings about death—such as our monthly Circle of Friends Death Cafés—and to learn about the various issues pertaining to dying, like preparing your end-of-life directives or taking advantage of hospice when the time comes. We also sponsor events to celebrate life, such as “Circlestock”, a concert and dance party. Our inaugural event was held last year at Colony in Woodstock and pictured here.

ABOUT THIS EVENT:
Death Café returns to the Hudson Valley for the 75th time for our 15th virtual gathering via the interweb! Last year people from all over the country joined our free virtual Death Cafés, with folks logging in to connect with each other and share their ideas and concerns about dying and death.
Plus, we’ve teamed up with Death Café of Westchester–along with Barbara Sarah–for this series of virtual events. We are expanding our circles despite the necessity to maintain a distance from each other. By providing an online safe space for dialoguing and sharing, Death Café keeps the conversation going. Join our community, and let’s hang out and talk about dying and death!
At Death Cafés, the aim is to increase awareness of death in order to help people make the most of their finite lives. Death Cafés are open to, and respectful of, people of all communities and belief systems. A Death Café is a group-directed conversation of death with no agenda, objectives, or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.
Plan to settle in with your tea or coffee in front of your computer for our Circle of Friends Death Cafe via Zoom on Sunday, July 18, at 6:30 pm. Register here for the link.
We’re looking forward to seeing you—and bring any interested friends!
