[close] This group is for anyone who is Death Positive, death doulas, end-of-life midwives, hospice workers/volunteers, and anyone who has ever or will ever experience a death (yes, that means YOU!). We encourage open, honest discussion about the one thing that we are all guaranteed in this life, Death. My hope is that we can dull the fears, and return the sacredness of death to our universal consciousness, to allow everyone to live their unique life to its fullest until their last exhale. "We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born The potential people who could have been here in my place But who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Sahara Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA So massively exceeds the set of actual people In the teeth of those stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds How dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state From which the vast majority have never stirred?" -Richard Dawkins

[close] Hello all! This is a group for death studies and thanatology enthusiasts! This is a place where we can talk about the literature, science, or discussions surrounding all things death. This does not exclude grief and loss. This also is not exclusive to non-fiction works, as we know that there are plenty of books, movies, songs, etc that discuss death, dying, grief, and loss. This is a death positive, LGBTQ+ safe space! Share cool stuff, make friends
