Are you looking for a community to explore topics related to death?
At a Death Café, people gather to eat cake, drink tea, and discuss death. Iona’s Take Charge/Age Well Academy, an educational program for proactive adults planning for their futures, is excited to offer this gathering and conversation opportunity for people to come together and talk about death.
ABOUT DEATH CAFES
The first Death Café was offered in the UK in September 2011. Since then, the model has expanded to more than 7,500 groups, with conversations and meet-ups happening across the globe. Death Cafés are discussion groups, not grief support groups or counseling sessions.
In a Death Café, the objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives. The discussion group is directed, and there is no agenda, objectives, or themes. Learn more about Death Cafés at deathcafe.com
