About this Death Cafe

Join local End-of-Life doulas Ka Yun and Annie in the Program Room at the Sunnyvale Public Library for a discussion of death over tea and snacks. 

At a Death Cafe, people—often strangers—gather to discuss death. We invite people in ALL phases of life to come talk about death and dying in a supportive, unstructured way.

Our shared objective is to increase awareness of death with a view towards helping people make the most of their (finite) lives. Expect a group discussion of death with no agenda, objectives, or themes. It is a place to talk and explore, rather than a grief support or counseling session. This Death Cafe is open to, and respectful of, people of all communities and belief systems. 

This will be a confidential space. We ask all participants to refrain from giving advice, criticizing another's beliefs, or offering unsolicited feedback; no products or services will be promoted.

This event is free. This program is for adults only. Registration is not required.

Please arrive early to get yourself a warm beverage so we can begin as close to 6:30pm as possible.

If you require special accommodation, please contact the library at 408-730-7300 or chat with a librarian at least three days in advance of the program.
