Program Details

Death Cafe


with Brett Ferrigan
December 19 / 6:30 PM - December 19 / 8:30 PM

We offer a quiet, safe space to drink tea, eat cake and discuss death.  The intent is not to be morbid, but to raise awareness of our own understanding and fears about death and dying.  Are we able to discuss dying with our family and loved ones?  If not, why not?  If we knew that we would die tomorrow, are we prepared?  Might addressing our fears about death, help us live a more mindful, appreciative life?  These are the types of questions we’ll discuss.


A Death Cafe doesn't include having specific topics, set questions or guest speakers. Our discussion will focus on whatever participants would like to discuss about death and dying.


Shambhala Gainesville is sponsoring this event for the whole community, not just our membership. Everyone is welcome.


This event is offered free of charge.  Donations are gratefully accepted.
