Death Cafe

  • Richmond First Baptist Church Suite 230 2709 Monument Ave Richmond, VA 23220 (map)

Description
When was the last time you casually talked about death over coffee or tea? Now's your chance! The Death Cafe is an agenda-free space to talk about death. You can expect a group-directed discussion with no intention of leading people to any conclusion or course of action. The objective of Death Cafes as quoted on the Death Cafe website is, “to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives."

To date, Death Cafes have been held all over Europe, North America, and Australia and continues to grow! Bring an open mind because each Death Cafe is a unique experience. Chrysalis is proud to help promote the Death Cafe lead by Shelby Krillin!

Light refreshments available.
