Friends of Hospice officially launched Talk & Treats Death Café in June 2016. We have since hosted 4 more events. People who have attended appreciated the opportunity to safely and frankly discuss their views and experiences with death in their own lives. Please join us for one of these important conversations!
What is a Death Café you ask? On deathcafe.com you can read what Death Café is:
“At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death.
Our objective 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.
Our Death Cafés are always offered:
- On a not for profit basis
- In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
- With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
- Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!”
The Talk & Treats Death Café will travel around Whitman County throughout each year. Our goal is to help people embrace life and honor death by providing a safe environment for discussion to take place. All adults are welcome.
Watch our website Calendar of Events page and Facebook for future dates and locations.
Friends of Hospice provides this program at no charge to attendees.
