Ann Arbor Death Cafe: The Dying Year.

  community member   < less

Join us for good conversation about the one thing we all have in common! No agenda or presentation, no selling anything, just discussion led by the participants. We start by going around and all introducing ourselves and saying why we came, then open it up for sharing from the heart. We don't tell each other what to think, it is not a grief support group, and every thing is confidential. Inclusive, open to all. Learn more at www.DeathCafe.com. This Ann Arbor group has been meeting monthly since Nov. 2012. Facilitated by Merilynne Rush, Diana Cramer, and Rachel Briggs. Email to receive the link. We meet on the third Saturday of the month.
