Death Cafe write up: Death Cafe in Prescott

Posted by FirstThursdays on May 23, 2016, 8:31 p.m.

This Death Cafe was an intimate gathering of seven particpants plus the host/facilitator.  It was a very interesting session in which particpants shared their experiences, their feelings of vulnerability about the latter stages of life and concerns about their own deaths and related personal control issues.  This was the second Death Cafe hosted by this faciliator and more of these small groups are intended for the future.  A larger venue is offered monthly at The Peregrine Book Company in Prescott if a larger group setting is preferred.
