  • Skylawn Memeorial Park Death Cafe
    Saturday, March 25, 2017 : 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

    Join an open and relaxed conversation about death and dying over a cup of tea or coffee.
    The Death Café model aims to shift the conversation around death and dying from one of fear or avoidance to that of familiarity and comfort. It is a safe, respectful space where you can feel comfortable sharing your questions, curiosity, fears, beliefs and stories about any/all aspects of death, grief, mourning, bereavement. We have learned that there is often lots of laughter as well as a few tears.

    EVENT IS FREE
    SATURDAY, MARCH 25TH from 2PM-4PM
