Death Café

Death Café Host: Lynne Calkins, founding board member of End of Life Choices California

Death Café provides a safe, agenda-free place to discuss death and life over a cup of tea and tasty treats.
It is not a grief therapy group. It is a gathering of friendly and interesting people discussing death, dying and living.
Our motto: “Breathing Life into Death”

All are Welcome.
Bring an open mind, an open heart, and your curiosity.
RSVP – If you’d like to attend, email Lynne at lcalkins@endoflifechoicesca.org, “Death Cafe” in the subject line.
Please give the full name of each person attending.
Death Cafés have been wait-listed in the past, so RSVP is advised.
For questions or to learn more, call Lynne at 760.402.0325

Our Mission

End of Life Choices California’s mission is to provide Californians the information and support to successfully navigate their legal end-of-life options.  Relevant topics include Advance Care Planning; the California End of Life Option Act (ELOA)eligibility requirements for Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD); and Voluntary Stopping Eating and Drinking (VSED)–a legal option in all 50 states. Our volunteers are very knowledgeable about both hospice and palliative care and can explain the differences between the two services.

Be sure to check our Resources page for Q/A; information on books, films, and organizations; sign up for our blog; see upcoming events in your area or on Zoom; and so much more.  To request a speaker for your group or organization, click here.
