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. Learn more about the Death Cafe movement.

Here is the schedule of upcoming Sunday afternoon Albuquerque Death Cafes for 2019. All are scheduled from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Manzano del Sol Village in the Fifth Floor Lounge. Sunday afternoon Death Cafes will be held on April 28; May 19; June 30; July 21; August 25; September 22; October 20; November 24; and December 15, 2019.
