ABQ Death Cafe and Festival Preview

October 11, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

ABQ Death Cafe tea service

The objective of the Death Cafe is “To increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” It’s all about an interesting, unstructured conversation – open and free-flowing with no specific agenda.

Get a preview of all the Before I Die ABQ Festival events and join in the group discussion at the Albuquerque Death Café. It’s an opportunity to talk about what’s on your heart or mind about mortality issues.

Refreshments will be provided. A free event, donations are gratefully accepted.

This event takes place at the Palo Duro Senior Center, 5221 Palo Duro NE, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Indicate your interest in multiple Before I Die ABQ Festival events.

Attendees at all Before I Die ABQ Festival events can enter a drawing for a free cremation from The Neptune Society of Albuquerque and a cedar “coff-urn” from The Old Pine Box.

The Death Cafe concept was started in the United Kingdom by Jon Underwood. He was influenced by the ideas of Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz, who started holding Cafe Mortel events in France and Switzerland. At these events, people come together in a relaxed, confidential and safe setting to discuss death, drink tea (or your favorite beverage) and eat delicious cake or cookies. More information here.
