Truly a global phenomenon, Death Cafés are being held all over the globe. The London-based founder of this social franchise, Jon Underwood, explains that “the objective of a Death Café is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” A Death Café is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group, rather than a grief support or counseling session. At a Death Café people come together in a relaxed, confidential atmosphere to discuss death, drink tea or coffee, and eat delicious cake.They are offered by nonprofit organizations with no intention of leading participants toward any particular conclusion, product, or course of action. Our Death Café in Flagstaff is open to those with secular, spiritual and/or religious viewpoints. Your Further Shore facilitators are experienced prehospice educators and end of life coaches. We hope you will join us for a Death Café in the future. Check our Calendar for the next one. This is a very popular event and reservations are required. Here are some notes from previous events. Enjoy!
