Death Cafes

What is a Death Cafe?
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'
A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. 
Death Cafes are always offered: 
- On a not for profit basis 
- In an accessible, respectful and confidential space 
- With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action 
- Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake! 

If you're interested in holding a Death Cafe please see our how-to guide. - See more at www.deathcafe.com
