About this Death Cafe
We are celebrating 5 years, this month, of the Death Cafes arriving in San Diego!
This Death Café will be held at Southwestern College in Building 210 in Boardroom 214, which is closest to the Gotham Street entrance off of Otay Lakes Road. Building numbers appear on the upper eaves of the buildings and room numbers appear next to the doors. Parking will be free to anyone who parks in Lot B…no need for a pass. If you park in other lots, a fee may apply.
Due to the structure of the program late arrivals may not be accommodated. So if you are planning on attending and are not already on campus, please plan to add 10-15 minutes to your schedule to arrive as close to the start time as possible.
Anyone is welcome! It's an event for 18+, family, friends and coworkers. We provide a safe, agenda-free place to discuss death and life overa cuppa and tasty treats. This is not a grief therapy group. It is no more and no less than a friendly and interesting group of humans discussing death, dying and living with the emphasis on living. Those who attend curate their own experience. Please rsvp. Death Cafes have been wait listed in the past so rsvp is advised.
A big thank you goes to Professor Jessica Posey, for her collaboration in arranging this Death Cafe. This is the second year that she has made the Death Cafe available to her students and the public.
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 6,000 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. The Death Cafes seemed like a perfect place to ignite these important conversations about end of life. 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.
