First Death Cafe Write-Up Santa Barbara

 

We hosted our first Death Cafe in Santa Barbara on Monday night, April 8th from 6-8PM.  It was held at a local restaurant in a private room.  We received 20 RSVPs and 20 came!  People found out about it primarily by word-of-mouth.

Death Cafe Santa Barbara Write-up July 2013

Death Cafe Santa Barbara met for the third time last night.  It was held in our new location and in collaboration with The Center For Successful Aging.  25 people attended; three of whom had attended our previous Death Cafe.  I welcomed my new co-host, Liz Bauer!

We ran the group as we did the last time with myself giving a brief history of Death Cafe, followed by introductions.  Liz then proposed a prompt question which was, “When did you first become aware of death?”.  At this point we broke into small groups and talked for about an hour.

We gathered back ...
