Death Cafe

January 23, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

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!
Facilitator for our Death Cafe is Alan Bingham, a retired hospice and palliative care executive who has spent many hours with terminal patients and their families. A management graduate with a liberal arts background in philosophy, he spent most of his career in healthcare informatics and is the author of Dying Well Prepared: Conversations and Choices for Terminal Patients. Alan lives in Somerville.
For more information, contact Meg at mragland@minlib.net or 617-623-5000 x2961.
