The next Albuquerque Death Cafe will take place on Friday, February 19 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at French Funerals and Cremations, 7121 Wyoming Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM. Please note the different place and time from the last Death Cafe.
Funeral director and location manager Buck Dyck will take participants on a tour of the facility and be available to answer questions. The funeral home is located on the west side of Wyoming, just north of the intersection with San Antonio/Harper.
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.
The Death Cafe concept was started in the United Kingdom by Jon Underwood. He was influenced by the ideas of Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz, who started holding Cafe Mortel events in France and Switzerland. At these 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.
