Helpful Tips for this event:

-this is a free event

-all ages welcome

please bring water

-protect your skin: wear/bring insect repellant & sunscreen, if you wish

-protect your head: wear a hat, sunhat, bandana or a face-mask “Buff” if you wish

-1-hour walk/hike: this swamp walk will not be fast and you will probably not cover a great deal of terrain. Remember, even if you don’t cover a lot of ground, you can still enjoy your swamp walk by taking the scenery in great detail. Notice the sights, smells, and sounds around you as you move slowly through a swamp. Bring your walking stick if you have one!

-wear closed-toe “old” shoes, waterproof  hiking boots or rubber boots

-comfortable “outdoor” clothing  (cotton shirt, breathable, synthetic items) to prevent overheating

-bring gloves if you wish

-please RSVP (727) 376-5111

West Pasco Death Café

West Pasco Death Cafe2

∗Eat cake, sip coffee and talk about death∗

Thursday evening, February 22, 7:00 pm

at People Places on Main Street, Downtown New Port Richey

 

A Death Café is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session. Nope, it’s not morbid nor depressing – If you don’t believe me, come check us out! Topics will range from personal stories, types of grief, rituals, aging, advice – to humor! — It is also okay to just come and listen. 18 and up preferred.  Death Cafés are open, free opportunities for people to get together and talk about all aspects of the end of life in a non-judgmental and open way. Death Cafés are occurring around the world.  There are local Death Café’s in Hernando, Pinellas & Ybor City. To find out more about Death Cafés, please visit the main website www.DeathCafe.com

 

 

If you would like to attend, please RSVP (space is limited) 727-376-5111.
