FALLBROOK – In celebration of the growing international movement known as Death Cafe, Fallbrook residents are invited to attend a “lively conversation about death” to be held at Hilltop Center for Spiritual Living (331 East Elder St.) on May 19, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

This event is part of the May Marathon in which over 12 hosts will provide six May Death Cafes across San Diego. The mission of the Death Cafe experience is to increase awareness of death, while helping people make the most of their finite lives.

Death Cafe is a non-profit international movement founded by Englishman Jon Underwood in 2010 to bring people together to talk about death in an open, neutral and confidential space. Death Cafe came to San Diego five years ago.

Death Cafe is neither a therapy nor a grief group; it was created under the premise that many people would like an opportunity to discuss death, but don’t feel comfortable doing so with family or friends. They are offered with no intention of leading participants toward any conclusion, product or course of action and there is no cost for attending or participating in a Death Cafe.

The San Diego Death Cafe Marathon is in celebration of the five year anniversary of the first Death Cafe held in San Diego, which took place May 13, 2013.
