About this Death Cafe

bout this Death Cafe

We've been hosting monthly Community Conversartions on Death and Dying for almost two years in the Madison WI area. Each has been an amazing experience for all who attend. These gatherings offer an unique opportunity to explore your own beliefs, questions, emotions and experiences in a safe and open environment. We look forward to sharing the evening with you. 

In addition to great discussion, attendees will enjoy coffee and tea (complements of EVP Coffee Shop) and assorted sweet treats.
