Discuss death and dying

The Okanagan Valley Death Cafes will be in Penticton and Kelowna at the end of April

Due to the recent success of the Okanagan Valley Death Cafes, more are coming up.

Two death cafes are planned for the end of April where our host venues have offered us exclusive use of their lovely restaurants.

Join in the discussion about death and dying and end the stigma at the Nest and Nectar, Wednesday, April 26,from 7 to 9 p.m. in Penticton.

In Kelowna, discuss death at the Hillcrest Farm Market and Cafe, Thursday, April 27 from 7 to 0 p.m., 700 Highway 33 East.

A Death Café is a group-directed discussion of death with no expectations and no agenda. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session. Anyone with a curiosity about death and dying and an interest in engaging with others in discussing end of life journeys is welcome to participate. For more information visit DeathCafe.com.

Seating is limited so reservations are required.
