About this Death Cafe

The Albuquerque Death Cafe is an interesting, unstructured conversation – open and free-flowing with no specific agenda and respectful of all points of view.

It’s an opportunity to discuss what’s on your mind or in your heart regarding life and death issues. Our Death Cafe mascot Lola (a life size plastic skeleton) doesn’t say much, but she’s a potent silent reminder of our mortality.
