Talking about death over tea and cake - an online Death Café

About this event

This Death Café is a group meeting on Zoom where people can come to talk about death.

Talking about death is not something that we can all do with our families and friends, and yet it is something which is so often on our minds.

At the Death Café, there is an emphasis on listening and sharing, and the focus is that life is finite and we want to talk about that. We all have interests and concerns about bereavement, loss, grief or dying, especially at this time when we are dealing with the Coronavirus.

Previous participants described the event as "healthy" and their feelings at the end as "hopeful" and "grateful" .

Pre-booking is essential. There are 15 spaces. A zoom invitation will be sent out on the day.

Organisers:

Tamsin Grainger is a complementary therapy practitioner, session leader, and the author of Death and Loss in Shiatsu Practice (pub Singing Dragon Press).

Bea Denton is an artist and educator whose practice explores ideas around death and loss, faith and ritual.

Contact: You will not be asked for personal information other than your name and email address. As well as the confirmation email with the zoom link, you will receive one email after the event.

For more information about the Death Café movement, see this website https://deathcafe.com/what/Our aim is for this Death Café to be accessible, respectful and confidential. There is no set agenda, no objective or theme. It is not a grief support group nor a counselling session. There is no intention by the organisers to lead participants to any conclusions, buy any products or take any course of action. Death Cafes are not religious, and are always ‘not for profit’ events.

“The goal of the movement is to enable people to share their fears and hopes in a fashion which does not have to treat death as a taboo – that is, as something that needs to be addressed through euphemisms or abandoned in silence.” Maddie Denton, Reflections of the Self: Death Café and the Search for Personal Meaning (An exploration of death in modern society).
