What we're about

Death Cafe Edmonton is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives, or themes. Death Cafe is a safe place to get comfortable discussing all things death, while maybe eating something yummy and drinking something refreshing.

Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'. This is neither a grief support group nor a counselling session, nor is there any particular expected outcome, just people getting together to explore thoughts on death and dying in a respectful way.

"Just like talking about sex won't get you pregnant, talking about death won't get you dead!" - Jon Underwood, Death Cafe founder

Feed your curiosity. Join the discussion and become part of Edmonton's death positive community!
