End-of-Life World Cafe
World Cafe is a powerful social technology for engaging people in conversations that matter. It is a process developed in the Mill Valley living room of New School friends Juanita Brown and David Isaacs in 1995, and has spread around the world as an effective and heart-full method of bringing people together in dialogue. Participating in a World Cafe event is an amazing experience in and of itself—the outcomes of the dialogue bring people together and are often surprising.
During this event, we explored our relationship to the end of life, gathered the collective wisdom on these issues, and provided direction for The New School end-of-life programming using the World Cafe dialogue process.
