What (in the world) is a Death Café?! We are a friendly discussion group with no agenda, no objectives, or themes. Thoughts, feelings, and experiences are all relevant. We are not a grief support or counseling session of any kind.
Many report that participating in Death Cafés reduces their anxiety about death and dying (their own or their loved ones’), which can enhance the way we live in the present. Most people leave feeling connected and uplifted. Our hope is to have a safe place for people to come and make this more of a necessary conversation. Trying to make this topic not ‘taboo’.
Please ** No selling of any kind.
The large gathering room at Heartwood Preserve will Sponsor & host this event: coffee, tea & desserts will always be served.
Death Café is an open group meeting that gathers about every 6-8 weeks-ish, to enjoy refreshments and talk about death. Why? because unfortunately, this topic is uncomfortable and a Death Café can change that.
Topics range from personal stories, grief, rituals, aging, books, advice – to humor! — It is also okay to just come and listen. We are not, however, a support group for people who are actively grieving or in end-of-life planning stages.
Think: table-top-talk….topic? >>> death!
Free to attend
We ask attendees are 17 and older PLEASE!
You MUST RSVP. NO WALK-IN’s!

What is a Death Café?
We are a group of people, often strangers, we gather to eat cake, enjoy tea and discuss death. It’s that simple
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.
A Death Café is a scheduled, non-profit get-together to escape the taboo of discussing death & dying.
We are participating in the Death Café movement, a life-affirming international social franchise started 9 years ago by Jon Underwood in London and later popularized by Lizzy Miles in the United States. Underwood developed the Death Café model based on the ideas of the Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz who, together with his anthropologist wife, studied funeral rites in their town and other cultures. When Crettaz’s wife died in 1999, he initiated meetings in local bistros to talk about death.
Death Cafes have spread quickly! As of today, there are 11552 Death Cafes in 73 countries since September 2011.
Death Café has no staff. We are run on a voluntary basis.
So, join us, your local WEST PASCO DEATH CAFE! Let’s chat… and eat delicious cake!
