Natural Awakenings Tampa Florida

Heartwood Preserve Happenings

Join Heartwood Preserve at 7 p.m., on January 7, as they host a Death Café, at their Trinity location. Death Café is a discussion group with no agenda, objectives or themes (not a grief support or counseling session of any kind). Eat cake, drink coffee and talk about... death! Occurring around the world, Death Cafés are a comfortable, free opportunity for people to get together and talk about all aspects of the end of life in a nonjudgmental and open way.

On January 25, from 2 to 4 p.m., Heartwood hosts an art exhibit opening reception with Elizabeth Coachman, MD. Moving to Florida in 1976 for a pathology residency at the University of South Florida, Coachman directed Tarpon Springs’ hospital laboratory for many years. In retirement, she creates intaglio prints, paints landscapes and has written the biographies of two of Florida’s first women physicians. She lives happily with Florida native Michael Coachman on their Hernando County cattle ranch where she maintains painting and printmaking studios. The couple travel via RV, and Coachman begins many of her paintings while traveling. Much of her print work involves visual puns.

Location: 4100 Starkey Blvd., Trinity. For more information, call 727-376-5111 or visit
