“Remember me, though I have to say goodbye / Remember me, don’t let it make you cry / For even if I’m far away, I hold you in my heart / I sing a secret song to you, each night we are apart / Remember me, though I have to travel far / Remember me, each time you hear a sad guitar / Know that I’m with you, the only way that I can be / Until you’re in my arms again, remember me…”

What is a Death Cafe?

At a #DeathCafe people talk about death over tea and cake. Over 11,000 Death Cafes have been held in over 73 countries. A group of people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, enjoy tea and discuss death. 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 counseling session.

A Death Cafe is a scheduled, non-profit get-together to escape the taboo of discussing death & dying.

Death Cafes are still somewhat unusual because death has always been a subject that people rarely to discuss… until someone gives you a comfortable place to do so.

Join us… let’s chat… and eat delicious cake!



Not on ZOOM.

Bring a mask.

2:00 PM


Your Host: LouAnn Saphos


With an academic background in Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy, and a desire to witness healing in others, LouAnn Saphos is a seeker of truth in myriad forms which potentiates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing.  She is a Reiki Master, a Certified Practitioner and Instructor of ThetaHealing, as well as a Certified Matrix Energetics Practitioner.  Her journey has led her to the understanding that we are energy beings in a quantum Universe that is always working on our behalf when we allow it to. It is through a willingness to release that which no longer serves us and step into our heart center that we are awakened to the unconditional love that is our true identity. From this space, we may become a vibrational match for all that is meant to flow into our lives and we begin to experience health, happiness, well-being, prosperity, joy and peace.

LouAnn is committed to assisting others toward finding their path to authentic fulfillment with the understanding that as each awakens, humanity is transformed.  She facilitates this process through private sessions and as an Instructor of the following ThetaHealing courses:

Basic and Advanced DNA, Dig Deeper, Manifesting and Abundance, Intuitive Anatomy, Soul Mate, Rhythm to a Perfect Weight, Plant and Animal Communication, Family Ties, and Game of Life.  LouAnn sees clients and teaches at her retreat on the west coast of Florida where students may stay while taking classes, or if you have a group in your area, she is available to travel.



Free class: Discussing the benefits of meditation and guided meditation that will include crystal bowls.
