About this Death Cafe

We are totally convinced that talking about death will not kill you!!!  As a matter of fact, there is evidence supporting that those who exercise the privilege of making their final wishes known (talking about death), enjoy a more peaceful life and death.

We are honored to hold a sacred space for our fellow Alaskans to share their thoughts, fears and questions in a death positive and safe environment.
