At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. The objective is "to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives." A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.
Death Cafes are always offered on a not-for-profit basis in an accessible, respectful and confidential space.
A Death Cafe gathering will be held in Fairfax on April 30th from 3-5pm at 771 Center Blvd. Register to attend at www.sukhhasiddhi.org
