This will be a space to come and talk about death, dying, bereavement and loss*.
A Death Cafe isn’t meant to be morbid, but it provides a space for talking about what for too many people is a taboo topic and one that many in society shy away from. In the midst of the current climate, this Death Cafe event will be held via Zoom. Attendees will receive a link and a password to access the event.
*Please note, this is not intended as therapy. Please see www.deathcafe.com for general information on Death Cafes and support sources below.
