Every 6 weeks, we hold a Death Cafe here at Bean Around Books. Hosted by acclaimed author, death coach, and mentor, Stephen Garrett, our Death Cafe is the first of it's kind in Vancouver. A Death Cafe is a social gathering where people. often strangers, gather to discuss death with no agenda, objectives 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 to any sort of conclusion about death but to open their minds and widen their opinions about a subject which can be daunting to some people.
