Death Cafe


Join Death Café Iowa for their monthly Death Café's on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 6-7:30pm. For location please contact the Academy.   

At a Death Café, people “eat cake and discuss death”. The aim is to “increase awareness of death to help people make the most of their (finite) lives”. During the Death Café people gather in a safe, relaxed setting to discuss death, celebrate life and enjoy food and time together. This Death Cafe is open to the community. This is not a support group or educational seminar - just a chance to talk about death in an effort to enhance life...and, of course, to eat cake.

If you would like to learn more about Death Café’s please visit their website: www.deathcafe.com or to learn more about the Death Cafe's happening in Iowa "like" our Death Cafe Iowa page on Facebook.  It is not required to RSVP to this event but is encouraged.
