Death Café  

Very limited attendance. Registration is required. Click here to register to receive a private link to this Zoom meeting.
Bring along your morning beverage of choice and join Anita Peters, Humanist celebrant, and other facilitators in this death café, informal yet intimate virtual conversation about how we approach our mortality.

A Death Café is a scheduled get-together to discuss an often taboo subject – death. The purpose is to educate one another and to help each other become more familiar with the end of life. The idea originated with a Swiss sociologist and anthropologist Bernard Crettaz, who organized the first café mortel in 2004.

Please note: This is not a bereavement group. Please see these Bereavement & Grief Support Resources for support.
