PDX Death Cafe is the largest in the world, according to the movement’s founder, London-based Jon Underwood. It was the incredible community interest that led us to organize this day-long event.
Death Cafes are simply a place to talk about what’s on your mind concerning death, and hear others’ thoughts and experiences.
We’re offering three discussion sessions in our Death Cafe space, located by our lunch room:
- 1-2:15 “Death Cafe Classic”
- 2:30-3:45 “Death Cafe Drop-In”
- 4-5:15 “My Gift of Grace”
Sit with a small group to break the silence around the topic in our classic format (1-2:15); drop in for a shorter chat (2:30-3:45); or play the award-winning conversation game My Gift of Grace (4-5:15).
Adjacent to our Resource Area, Ancestor Altar, Threshold Choir Song Baths, and Photo Booth, our Death Cafe space provides a chance to engage in conversation, contemplation, and connect with community.
Come join the discussion – our Death Cafe hosts will look forward to greeting you!
