About this event

This event has been moved to Zoom. All registered attendees should have received an email with a Zoom link on February 9th. Please check spam or promotional folders, or email if you did not receive this email, and we can send you a link.

Join Lakewood for our seasonal Death Café. Following the model developed by Jon Underwood, the Death Café allows our community members to enjoy a treat, have some tea, and discuss death. The goal of this quarterly 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.

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.
