Death Cafe'? The objective of Death Cafe is "To increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives". Death cafes began in 2004, when sociologist Bernard Crettaz began hosting pop-up "cafe mortals" in Switzerland." They have recently come to North America. Each cafe is led by a facilitator comfortable and knowledgeable about dealing with death. At Death Cafes people come together in a relaxed and safe setting to discuss death, drink tea and eat delicious cake.

Joinme and my guest Mark LaRocca, host of Death Cafe in Atlanta Georgia and learn how to participating in a Death Cafe' might be of help to you.
