Death Cafe: A Meaning of Life

On the 1st Thursday of every month, we hold Death Cafe: A Meaning of Life here at Bean Around Books. Hosted by acclaimed author, death coach & mentor, Stephen Garrett, our Death Cafe is the first of its kind in Vancouver.


What is a Death Cafe?


Death Cafe: A Meaning of Life is a social gathering where people, often strangers, gather to discuss death with no agenda, objective or themes. The Death Cafe is meant to engage strangers with one another about the topic of death in an accessible, respectful and confidential space. The intent is not to lead people to any sort of conclusion about death but to open their minds & widen their opinions about a subject which can be incredible daunting to some people.
