Death Cafe’s are increasing in popularity and have been offered in 48 countries throughout the world. “The objective of Death Café is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives”.

Death Café offers a venue to openly discuss all aspects of death as it relates to the feelings of the living.  It is an open, respectful and confidential space where people can freely express their thoughts and feelings.  Death Cafe is not a bereavement support group.  Discussions are meant to enlighten, inform and ignite and interest in the subject of death – a reality we all must face.  Be prepared to explore a topic that is often not discussed openly.

Facilitators Kelly Grimaldi and Jane Reel will open the discussion with a series of questions and suggestions for topics to explore.  Participants in Death Café will take the discussion in any direction they wish!
