Did you know Albuquerque was the first U.S. city west of the Mississippi to hold a Death Cafe? It’s a worldwide movement that started in the U.K. in 2011. Gail Rubin, The Doyenne of Death®, hosted the first one in Albuquerque in September 2012.
The Death Cafe objective is “To increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” At these free events, people come together in a relaxed, confidential and safe setting to discuss death, drink tea (or your favorite beverage) and eat delicious cake or cookies.
The next Albuquerque Death Cafe will take place on Saturday, Sept. 27 at 2:00 p.m. at the Swiss Alps Bakery Cafe, 3000 San Pedro NE, Suite F, Albuquerque, NM 87110.
