I have been offering Death Cafe’s in Renfrew County since 2014. “At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.”
A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.
Death Cafes are always offered:
~ On a not for profit basis
~ In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
~ With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
~ Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food~ and CAKE!”

Most of all, it is a warm and welcoming space and there are always gluten free options. Bring a friend and experience something different and new! Death Cafe’s are offered 2-3 times per year in Renfrew County. Check back for 2019 dates coming soon!
