What is a Death Café?
At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’. This group is for discussing death with no agenda, themes, or objectives. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

Offered by Lulu Cook, APD and Lynn Kelly, teachers at Heart Insight Meditation. Lulu is a dietitian helping people heal gut health, mental health, and food addiction challenges. Lynn is a long time practitioner of the Buddhadharma and an experienced hospice volunteer.

Courage to Change: Meditation Workshop for People in Recovery @ Haiku Yoga Arts
Nov 24 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The Buddha taught that craving is a root cause of suffering, and that meditation is part of the path to freedom from the cycle of attachment and habitual behaviour. The 11th Step of Alcoholics Anonymous also points to the power of meditation to create positive change in our lives. In this workshop we’ll explore how mindfulness and compassion support abstinence from habitual substances or behaviours that cause harm.

Open to people in any form of recovery and suitable for those who are new to meditation. There will be periods of guided meditation, group discussion, and community building. Led by Lulu Cook and Tanya Smith. Suggested donation $20, no one turned away. Feel free to join us for the regular Heart Insight meeting at 6pm, after enjoying dinner in West End.
