Death Café

Wednesday, Sept 27th | 4 p.m.

At a Death Café, people -- often strangers -- gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. The objective is "to increase awareness of death to help people make the most of their (finite) lives." A Death Café is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives, or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.


“We live knowing that everything dies. Like the sun, it’s a fact of life. And like the sun, we tend not to look right at it. Unless you’ve experienced a recent death, it’s probably not something you discuss. But a new movement is trying to change that, with a serving of tea and cake.”
