A frank conversation about death.

A Death Cafe is a group-directed discussion about death with no agenda, objectives, or themes. The purpose is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of our (finite) lives. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.

About Death Cafes: The first death cafe was held in London in 2011; 13,872 Death Cafes have subsquently been held in 81 countries. For more information, see www.deathcafe.com.

Facilitator: Kathleen Garces-Foley, Ph.D. is Founding Director of Arlington's Coalition to Improve Advanced Care, Professor of Religious Studies at Marymount University, and a published author on death and funeral practices.

Refreshments will be provided.
