Please join Comfort Society and speaker Alejandro Salinas for a Death Café at Comfort Station! We’ll participate in a community event to get to know one another and to stretch into our own understandings of our values on living and dying in a comfortable and safe atmosphere. After the event, Alejandro will share collected and historical wisdom gifted from the dying from his research on therapies at end-of-life.
What’s a Death Café? A Death Café is a group-directed discussion over coffee, tea, and cake. The objective is to practice the art of talking openly about our own mortality so as to make the most of our finite lives. Anyone of any age, background, spiritual belief (or lack thereof!) is welcome to attend as the results are enriched by the variety of participants. Let’s break the taboo, together!

He is a 200hr certified Yoga Teacher and has practiced for nearly a decade. Alejandro is on a mission to relax the planet. He believes that holding space for, and having conversations about death is a major component to relieving our anxieties and fears around this topic.
