About this Death Cafe
Important note for this month's meeting!
We will have some folks from Houston Public Media filming during the last hour or so of the dialogue, for a PBS series on death and dying. For more information about this project, scroll to the bottom of this page.
The filming will only be during the last hour of the Death Cafe, so if you're not comfortable being part, please still come along -- we will be having our discussion as normal from 12pm - 1:30pm.
Talking about death won’t kill you, so come along to a Death Cafe!
All are welcome at our monthly discussion circle on death (and life).
This month we're excited to be hosted by The Jung Center, in the Museum District.
There will be cookies and pastries, and anyone wishing to bring along treats to share is welcome to do so!
Houston Public Media and PBS present Dead and Buried.
This series explores our evolving attitudes towards death, including the growing trend towards openness and honesty about end-of-life care. It aims to break taboos and present cultural perspectives to expand our understanding of one of life’s natural and most profound experiences.

Episode 2 specifically explores the Death Positive Movement. Death Cafes are a huge part of this important movement, and we are honored to be able to capture b-roll of Houston Death Cafe at the Jung Center on June 3rd, 2023
Filming will include audio and video and take place at the end of the discussion to allow for any participants to opt out of being filmed. B-roll may be included in the episode to showcase the environment and flow of a Death Cafe.
About Stephanie Wolff
Stephanie has been facilitating Houston Death Cafe's monthly meetings since the group returned from hiatus at the start of 2022. Her background in death has been both personal, paid, and voluntary. Noteably, she has served as a listener on the Samaritans Suicide Helpline during her time living in Edinburgh, Scotland, and currently volunteers with a local hospice that serves those with HIV/AIDS.
"I am deeply passionate about the death positivity movement, and creating spaces where people from all walks of life can gather to discuss death. Death belongs to everyone. And I can't wait to meet you at the next Death Cafe!"
