October 28, 2021 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Pine River Library will be joining groups in 79 countries across the world when they resume hosting Death Cafés on Thursday, October 28 from 6-7:30 pm. A Death Cafe is a time and place where people come to share food, drink tea or coffee, and discuss death openly and honestly. The aim is to increase awareness about death in order to help people make the most of their (finite) lives. There is never an intention of leading participants to any conclusion, product or course of action. A Death Cafe is not a bereavement support or grief counseling setting, nor is it place to give people information about death and dying. It is not for people who, for whatever reason, are unwilling to discuss the subject of death comfortably and openly. Interesting conversations are guaranteed! The event will be facilitated by Lola Montano, a registered nurse who is pursuing her hospice certification and is interested in becoming a death doula.
