Death Café

Wednesday, February 28th | 4 p.m.

Every 4th Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Welcome to the Death Café discussion group at the Peregrine. This event is facilitated by Michelle Souza, Otis Nafpliotis and Dani LaVore. We meet at 4 pm on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

“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.”

About Death Café

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. Death Cafes have spread quickly across Europe, North America, and Australasia. So far, they have offered 7,584 Death Cafes in 64 countries since September 2011. Click here to learn more about Death Café discussion groups.
