Chances are that if you stumble upon my website, you’re probably looking for information about Death Salon. I’m the director for this group of academics, artists, death professionals, and artists working with the themes of mortality and mourning in our culture, spawned from The Order of The Good Death. We’ve got some of the brightest minds in their fields converging on cities worldwide for these events, and we can’t wait to share some history, culture, and art with you. Here’s a video from Death Salon UK that shows what our events are like.

    Hello Ms. Rosenbloom,

    Death and its meaning in our lives is one of my favorite conversations. Delighted to discover this passion is shared.

    I am writing for a specific purpose. Suicide. There has been a rash of suicide among the faculty members of a small community college where I am a student and work study. One of my bosses, Kate Woods, has been asked to give a workshop on the particular grieving associated with death by suicide.

    I’ve checked The Death Salon and The Order Of Death websites and found nothing on suicide. Is there a direction you can point me in?

    Thanks for your time,
    Michele L. Daubert
