Cafe Philosophique De La Mort

When: Thursdays in November 2018

Time: 7:30-9:30pm

Where: The Alex Theatre St Kilda, 1/135 Fitzroy Street St Kilda

Price: $15

Cafe Philosophique De La Mort will utilise poetry and music to prompt safe and engaging conversation around death and dying. We will seek to better understand its process, overcome our fears, consider our rituals and discuss whether we need others. We will look into grief and how we can support those experiencing loss and we will evaluate the ways our communities support the ageing process.
