Hospice SLO hosts the first Death Café in San Luis Obispo, joining groups from all over the world who are holding casual, informative and inspiring gatherings to talk openly about death and dying. Death Cafes have been held in London, Vancouver, New York City, Los Angeles, New Zealand, Calgary and now – San Luis Obispo.

Are you curious about the topic? Do you want to open the discussion with family or friends but don’t know how? Are you dealing with end-of-life issues in an immediate way? Are you planning for your own future?

Death Café offers an open, respectful and confidential space free of discrimination where people can express and explore their understanding of death with others.  You are welcome to join us.

Death Cafés provide a relaxed, non-judgmental, group discussion about any number of topics related to the inevitability of death. There is no intention of leading participants to any particular conclusion, product, or course of action.  Refreshments will be served.  Our Participants often leave a Death Café feeling as if they have learned more about life than about death.

Hospice SLO will host Death Café on a regular basis. Please call our office to sign up to be notified about upcoming opportunities to attend Death Café.

John Allen participated in the first on line Death Café hosted by Betsy Trapasso. From that great initial experience he knew that an in person Death Café needed to be held in San Luis Obispo.

Our facilitator is Robert Sachs, Hospice Social Worker and spiritual counselor. The afternoon is an opportunity for open discussion, with Robert able to answer questions and provide local resources, as needed.

All services from Hospice SLO are free of charge, including Death Cafe, donations are welcome.
