Calgary’s first Death Café!

Mark your calendar for Sunday, March 10 from 2 to 5 PM for Calgary’s first Death Café! 

Want to participate in Calgary’s first Death Café event? Started in the Switzerland, Death Café events are sweeping through the United Kingdom, United States and Canada as people meet in relaxed settings to drink coffee, indulge in cake or cookies, and discuss that undeniable fact-of-life, death. 

The objective of Death Café is “To increase awareness of death with a view toward helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” Calgary`s first meeting will kick off with a viewing of the animation “Mr. Reaper’s Really Bad Morning” by Calgarian filmmakers Kevin Kurytnik and Carol Beecher.

The conversation that follows will be spontaneous and free-flowing, facilitated by Wendy Kurchak who brings a wealth of knowledge and years of experience in the area of death and grief.

Calgary’s first Death Café will take place Sunday, March 10, from 2 to 5 PM at a northwest bookstore. To participate in this free event, and details about the location, please email Wendy at with your name and a phone number by Wednesday, March 6.
