About this event

Death Cafe At Home meets online via Zoom. For up to 12 participants. We run a waiting list in case of a cancellation.

What is Death Cafe?

Death Cafe is a worldwide movement started by Jon Underwood in London in 2011. At Death Cafe people come together to talk about anything to do with death, dying, funerals or bereavement. The aim is to make death a natural part of conversation, helping to accept it as a part of (our)life. Death Cafe offers a safe space where people are sharing personal stories, thoughts and ideas. We ask participants to be respectful of differences in beliefs, lifestyles and culture and treat personal stories confidentially. Death Cafe is not a bereavement group and may not be suitable for newly bereaved people. It is a group-led discussion. Each Death Cafe is different, but what they all have in common is that people usually find the meetings have a life-affirming and uplifting effect.

We begin the conversation asking everyone to introduce themselves and say what brings them to Death Cafe. What is the issue/s you would like to talk about today? The conversation flows from there.

Have your cup of tea & cake ready.

Let us know if you are not coming so someone on the waiting list can take your place.

The log in link will be sent to you on the day. You can log in 10 minutes before the start of meeting in case any technical problems need sorting. We start on time. Late comers can not be admitted.
