Join us in Bigelow Chapel for our third Death Cafe, cohosted with the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Eastern Massachusetts!

Following the model developed by Jon Underwood (based on the ideas of Bernard Crettaz), a Death Cafe is an opportunity for people to eat cake, drink tea, and discuss death. The goal is to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.”

This is not an end-of-life planning event, bereavement group, or grief counseling. We hope that you will come with an open mind, prepared to discuss the topic of death with strangers in a safe, respectful environment.

The Funeral Consumer’s Alliance of Eastern Mass is an organization dedicated to protecting a consumer’s right to choose a dignified, meaningful, and affordable funeral. They provide information and support to members regarding laws and practices pertaining to death.
