The Death Hangout is a very special and humanistic place (non-religious and non-political).
We are a community of very like-minded people who believe death has a very useful function in our lives.
And no, not just to wipe us mercilessly from the face of the earth.
Yes! Death can also be a compass, a guide, or the best freakin’ life coach ever, allowing you to live a meaningful and fulfilled life.
Rather than ignore our mortality and pretend it is not there, we believe in openly thinking, chatting, and learning about it. Oh, and having fun along the way. Yes, so much fun…with Death in mind!
One thing we would like to assure you is, we are not morbid, depressed, nor suicidal…au contraire! We love life so much, so very much that we believe it shouldn’t be wasted.
Frequently Asked Questions
No, we are dead serious (Ha Ha!) Sure, we use humor, but our message is pretty clear: We must live with death in mind.
No, we are not religious, and we don’t take any religious standpoint (although we very much like the buddhist philosophy of life).
We hate labels, but let’s just say that we are agnostic to make things simple.
We welcome people from all walks of life.
No, we don’t believe this for a second and you shouldn’t either.
Well, that’s precisely the point. And it didn’t use to be like this before.
Death is something that will happen to all of us, and rather than wait to be on your deathbed, why not get acquainted before?
And as a bonus, you may experience how your life can unexpectedly change for the better when you are aware of your mortality.
Nope, we are not.
Au contraire! Although we have our own daily struggles like anybody else, we are pretty happy and content people.
We are sorry that you feel this way.
We would never advocate suicide, and if you are contemplating suicide, we seriously recommend you please reconsider and seek help and support.
Well, good for you. But this is not how we as humans work. Much research shows that hiding and ignoring your feelings (including difficult ones) are causing more harm than good.[SPOILER ALERT] And no matter how positive you are, we all will eventually die.
