Purchase Tickets
Join Lakewood for our monthly Death Café. Following the model developed by Jon Underwood. The goal of this monthly gathering is to provide a safe and comfortable space to ask those difficult questions and become more comfortable with living in the presence of death and dying. This is a casual free-flowing discussion group that is guided by attendees, though the host will be ready with talking points we encourage you to join us with any thoughts, questions, or ideas for the group to discuss.
There are no predetermined topics or themes for this Death Cafe. Attendees are encouraged to guide the conversation however feels most natural, and interject with other thoughts and topics as needed. The hosts will intentionally step back unless more guidance or topics are needed.

Please note: This is not an end-of-life planning event, bereavement group, or grief counseling event – it is a discussion group for topics related to death and dying. This event will cover topics that may be difficult to discuss, but we hope this event will provide a safe and respectful space for our community to come together, share their thoughts, and encourage discussion on the universal topic of death.

Our moderators are also not Lakewood staff or representatives so they will not be able to help with Lakewood-specific questions. For answers to those questions, please connect with our Family Services Team by emailing or calling 612-822-2171.


This event is hosted over Zoom. A link will be provided to all who register for this event. If you registered and did not receive a link, please email
Camera access and microphone capabilities are required: Given the sensitive and personal nature of this topic, we will ask that you keep your camera on for this conversation.
