Date with Death Club: What to Do with a Dead Body?

Exploring Mortality in Community
Thursday, December 15, 2022, 6:30 pm

Black circle with the text "Date with Death Club: Exploring Mortality in Community" inside it, and outside of it.Do you want to face mortality with less fear and more curiosity, less euphemism and more reality, less conformity and more creativity?

Facilitated by Rev. Karen G. Johnston, Date with Death Club is a non-dogmatic opportunity to explore mortality in community through connection, reflection, and conversation.

Come to one, some, or all of the monthly sessions. Participation in each session is first come, first served.


What to Do with a Dead Body?: After a death, the body must be taken care of— “disposed.” Common means are burial and traditional cremation. Recently, in the U.S., traditional cremation has surpassed burial as a choice in this arena. Yet there are evolving technologies and new choices to be made. Perhaps you want a green burial? We’ll explore what’s out there and what choices you may want to make in your own life.

Note: Date with Death Club is NOT a bereavement group. For more information, visit the Date with Death Club website:, or visit the Date with Death Club Facebook page.
