The sign of a great Death Café is one where the participants are so engaged that the noise level is the biggest complaint on the evaluations. This was the experience of the 23 guests at the Death Café held at Good Earth near Westhills in Calgary. Diverse ages, genders, and cultures were present to discuss death, the one thing we all have in common. It was a wonderful turnout for a sunny afternoon in June. Many of the guests were first-time attendees with the promise of return visits. Death Cafés will return in Calgary in October 2016.
I need to cancel a Death Cafe that I've posted and can't find how to do this. No-one has booked yet so its simply a matter of deleting it before anyone books.

A very small group was also formed of people caring for a dying person or facing their own death soon. All in all, participants went away feeling ...
