The Death Cafe offers a rare opportunity to talk honestly and candidly with others about death. In this safe environment, we are able to give voice to some of our fears and share our cherished hopes about end-of-life. Join us to share stories, experiences, beliefs, and new perspectives.
The Village’s Death Cafe is hosted by Ingeborg Kohler, a member with over 13 years of experience volunteering in hospice. The cafe met for over three years before taking a hiatus. New and former members are invited to join this new iteration.
