This event is part of the Motherless Mother's Day series.
At this virtual Death Cafe five people who are motherless will join together in a safe and intimate space to discuss death and life. This Death Cafe will be a group directed discussion with no agenda, objectives or themes. It will not be a grief, support or counseling group. The objective of the Death Cafe movement is "to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their finite lives."
