Life is mortal. Why do we find it difficult to talk about death? We live on the precipice between life and death but the conversation doesn’t come naturally. Join us for Death Café, an “event where people drink tea, eat cake and discuss death.” Death Cafés have been created as an avenue to “increase awareness of death, to help people make the most of their (finite) lives.” A Death Café is not a support group, nor is it a place where someone is trying to promote a philosophy or sell you something. Topics are determined by the participants. Join us for dessert and an afternoon of life-giving conversation!
