Café Psych: Death – what does it mean to you?

The meaning of life has been debated throughout history from different philosophical and religious perspectives but what about the meaning of death? The topic is somewhat taboo in modern western societies and talking about death can be met with resistance and fear.

However, we fundamentally cannot separate life from death as they (along with taxes) are the only certainties we have. Irvin Yalom, an existential psychotherapist, spoke about how ‘though the physicality of death destroys us, the idea of death may save us’. At this month’s café we will be considering death, denial, near death experiences and what these ideas mean to you!

Come along and join the conversation on Wednesday 29th May 7-9pm at THe Horse, Surry Hills. You can register for the event here: https://www.meetup.com/en-AU/Cafe-Psychologique-Sydney/events/261308219/
