About this Death Cafe

Everyone dies. Almost no one likes to talk about it. However, talking about death early and often can help us confront our own fears and questions and help us make informed decisions for ourselves and our loved ones. It may seem counter-intuitive, but talking about death can help us enjoy life more.

Tea and cake will be served, including a gluten-free option if needed.

This event is for people from all backgrounds, regardless of belief system, age, race, gender, or sexual orientation. We commit to honoring each other's differences.

Space is limited, so please RSVP.
