About this Death Cafe
The Death Cafe will take place at Southwestern College in the Learning Resource Center in Room L238 North and South. It is a three story building on the north side of campus facing H Street. Parking lot N is close by. Parking permits will be available as long as you rsvp for this event. Please give yourself extra time for arrival if you have not been on the Southwest Campus. It is easy to navigate and it is a college campus - a bit spread out. Seating is limited, so rsvp is advised, and due to the structure of the program late arrivals may not be able to join in.
A big thank you goes to Professor Jessica Posey for her collaboration in arranging this Death Cafe.
About Karen Van Dyke and Anne Barber
KAREN VAN DYKE
Karen pioneered the Death Cafés in San Diego as a community service, in May, 2013 joining now more than 3,000 other Cafes worldwide. The concept is built on the premise that many people want to talk about death, but cannot address it with family and/or friends. My desire to provide this service came from a need that I saw while running my company, Senior Care by Design, a placement service for seniors and their families. People don't talk to each other about death so when they do get older there's no financial, spiritual or legal plan in place as they age...so, the Death Cafes seemed like a perfect place to ignite these important conversations. My belief is that if we talk about death we will make the most of our finite lives.
Anne Barber, MSW, is a social worker with experience in several areas: long-term care, hospice and working with severe mental illness. She volunteers as the hosts coordinator for Death Cafe San Diego.
