Working on the Ending
A conversation about death and dying
Death Cafe is a nonprofit initiative which began in the U.K., led by Jon Underwood, based on the work of Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz. Now popular worldwide, a Death Cafe is simply a social gathering of people, often strangers from many different walks of life, organized for the purpose of discussing death, without any formal agenda or commercial pressure. We are holding Death Cafes via Zoom during Covid19.
