DEATH CAFÉ

The Marin Villages’ First Death Café was a rousing success. Comprised of a diverse group (of believers and non), everyone in attendance went away feeling lighter and grateful for the experience. Each participant welcomed the issues and experience of the others, and laughter and commiseration kept the event remarkably lively. Rhea’s home (which will be its recurring location, added as much to the warmth and comfort people felt, as did our seasoned facilitator.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The popularity of the Death Café has us limiting it to members and volunteers. Yet, when you register, please let Jackie know if you have a guest you would like to bring. We will put them on the waiting list and may be able to include them. PLEASE RSVP TO OUR FACILITATOR, JACKIE HEWITT, jackiejoyous@gmail.com or 415-419-2636.
