Additional time info:

After the workshop, join us for a free, open discussion about death and grieving at a Death Cafe, hosted by Mount Auburn Cemetery.

A Death Cafe is a group-directed discussion about death with no agenda, objectives, or themes. It is a discussion group-- not a grief support group or counseling session. The objective of a Death Cafe is to "increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their finite lives." There will be cake and tea available.

Registration is not required for the Death Cafe and seats are available on a first come first serve basis. The discussion will begin at 5:30pm in Bigelow Chapel.
