Upcoming events with Gail Rubin, CT
Sunday, May 20, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. — Albuquerque Death Cafe in the Fifth Floor Lounge at Manzano Del Sol Village, 5201 Roma NE, Albuquerque, NM. The objective of the Death Cafe is “To increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” It’s all about an interesting, unstructured conversation – open and free-flowing with no specific agenda. Relax over some coffee or tea, some cake or cookies, and join in a group discussion to talk about what’s on your mind about mortality issues.
Refreshments will be provided at this free event. Donations are gratefully accepted. RSVP to Gail[at]AGoodGoodbye.com. Join the Albuquerque Death Cafe Meetup group to be kept apprised of upcoming events. Click here to go to the Meetup page.
