Join One Spirit for The Death Cafe - a special evening of "The Gathering"

A Death Cafe is a gathering of people, often strangers, who come together to discuss death. In a culture where death is the most taboo subject that a person can bring up, death cafes provide a safe space and small group format where participants can discuss any aspect of death that they are interested in, curious about or wish to explore. Rather than grief support or a counseling session, the objective of a death cafe is simply to raise awareness of death so as to help people make the most of their lives.

Thursday, August 13, at 7 PM ET.
