About this Death Cafe

We are running this Death Cafe because we both feel it is a necessary and often times overlooked conversation that needs be held. Removing the stigma surrounding this and other difficult topics go a long way to help us all find peace. 

We plan on running our event extraordinarily lax. Introductions, possibly inquiring as to participants motivations for joining, with participation based solely on participants' comfort. We will start with a quote or a jump off point just to get the conversation flowing, but there is NO OUTLINE. We enjoy letting the conversation lead itself, where we end isn't dependent on where we start! 

We also ask that participants come with an open mind. As stated in the guidelines, there is no agenda or propagation of beliefs, just an open discussion of where everyone is coming from and an acceptance of other's opinions and beliefs as valid. Bearing this in mind, we employ a certain level of humor with things, not to diminish, but to provide a level of levity to help ease the heaviness of the conversation for some. That said, read the room and have a good time! We look forward to sharing this with all of you!
