Death Cafe

Come join us for our first ever Death Cafe, facilitated by Anne Ohman, the Shine On Death Doula!

What is a Death Cafe?

A Death Cafe is “a deliberate, safe community space in which we can share our questions, curiosities, fears, beliefs, and stories about any and all aspects of Death and Dying.

Talking about death and end-of-life options shakes the taboo, softens the fear, and invites us to be more fully Alive.”

Spots will be limited in order to keep the conversation intimate and to ensure that everyone has a chance to speak.

Registration opens on 10/4.

 HML Writers Group
Saturdays from September 2nd to December 3rd

The goal for HML Writers Group is to help writers be comfortable with themselves, with their own styles and their own needs. We’re not all novelists, or poets, or short story writers. We’re not all speed writers; trying to go-go-go on a prompt for ten minutes isn’t everybody’s writing style. And that’s all right. Writers bring what they’re working on to read out loud, or pass out copies for critique. More often than not, most of the meeting time is devoted to the act of writing, with timers set and prompts given as a springboard for a story or poem to take flight.

To register, email
