Pine River Library will join groups in 59 countries across the world as a host of a Death Café from 10:30 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the library, 395 Bayfield Center Drive.
A Death Cafe is a time and place where people come to share food, drink tea or coffee and discuss death openly and honestly. The aim is to increase awareness about death in order to help people make the most of their lives. There is never an intention of leading participants to any conclusion, product or course of action.
A Death Cafe is not a bereavement support or grief counseling setting, nor is it place to give people information about death and dying. It is not for people who, for whatever reason, are unwilling to discuss the subject of death comfortably and openly.
The event will be facilitated by Robert “Han” Bishop, an active member of the Elders Action Network. Bishop is semiretired from a career in government service, international corporate management and entrepreneurial enterprise. He is also the former producer and host for “Transforming Reality Talk Show.”
