About this Death Cafe


A Death Cafe, hosted by Astral Dragonfly, on June 8, 2023, at the Main Library in Downtown Akron from 4:30-7:00 pm. This event is open to anyone who is interested in exploring and discussing death in a safe and supportive environment.

A Death Cafe is a space where people can come together to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences related to death and dying. It is not a grief support group or a therapy session, but rather a place for open and honest conversation about a topic that is often considered taboo. Participants are encouraged to share their perspectives, ask questions, and listen to others in a respectful and non-judgmental atmosphere.


At this Death Cafe, there will be coffee, tea, and cake provided to create a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. People who are interested in exploring their own thoughts and feelings about death or who are looking to gain a better understanding of death and dying are encouraged to attend.

If you have any questions about the event or would like to learn more about Astral Dragonfly, please visit the website at or contact Angela Laakso directly at or 330-603-5124. We hope to see you at the Death Cafe!
