The Death Café is a discussion group about death and its related topics. The goal of the café is to increase awareness of death with the view of helping people make the most of their finite lives. The Death Café meetings are confidential and not-for-profit. Guiding principles are that participants respect one another’s beliefs and avoid trying to change others’ viewpoints. The Death Café is not a bereavement or grief support group or end-of-life planning session.
