About this Death Cafe

The Young Bereavement Professionals Group is excited to host another Death Cafe!  We will be meeting at Inspired Grounds Cafe in Valley Junction. Please join us for an open discussion about anything related to death! We'll have two questions when you arrive: What is your name, and why did you join us tonight?  From there, we'll give everyone a chance to speak and hear others! Delicious drinks and food will be available for purchase from Inspired Grounds.

About Young Bereavement Professionals Group

Buffy Peters started her career of working with grieving people as a volunteer working with grieving children and in August 2014 she started as the Coordinator of Hamilton’s Academy of Grief & Loss. One of the things she enjoys most about the Death Café is having a safe place where people can openly discuss anything they want regarding death.

Carmen Elliott has been working with volunteers and grieving families since 2008 with The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, as a Bereavement Coordinator for hospice, and as the Program & Volunteer Coordinator for a local grief center. Her favorite part of Death Cafe is listening to the diverse stories and always learning something new!

Carrie Bauer has worked in the death, dying, and bereavement field since 2010, where she has worked in hospice and has been the Director of Hamilton’s Academy of Grief & Loss since December 2012. Her favorite part of Death Café is creating a space in the community to talk openly about death and grief and hearing others stories!
