The next Albuquerque Death Cafe is scheduled for Sunday, August 26 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Manzano de Sol Village, 5201 Roma Street NE (just south of Lomas Blvd. and just west of San Mateo Blvd.).

The objective of the Albuquerque Death Cafe is “To increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” At these events, people come together in a relaxed, confidential and safe setting to discuss death while eating delicious cake or cookies. It’s an interesting, unstructured conversation that’s open and free-flowing with no specific agenda.

As pioneering Death Cafe hostess and death educator Gail Rubin says, “Talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, and talking about funerals and end-of-life won’t make you dead.” Come and join the conversation!

Refreshments will be provided. The event is free and donations are welcome. Send a note to Gail [at] to RSVP and get directions.
