A time to discuss death! 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 an interesting, unstructured conversation with no specific agenda. The ABQ Death Cafe offers a relaxed, confidential and safe setting to discuss death, drink tea (or your favorite beverage) and eat delicious cake or cookies. We also provide options for those avoiding gluten and added sugar.

The next Albuquerque Death Cafe will be held on Sunday, November 24 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Manzano del Sol Village, 5201 Roma Street NE. We meet in the 5th floor lounge. This is a free event, donations are welcome. RSVP to Gail Rubin at Gail [at]

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.

The discussion is facilitated by Gail Rubin, CT, The Doyenne of Death®. She is a pioneering death educator and one of the first people to host a Death Cafe in the United States, starting in 2012.
