Has anyone used these cards? Produced by the Church of England to encourage conversations about death and dying - I wondered how they woudk fit in with the Death Cafe ethos, and non facilitating facilitation role


Hi Cathryn,

The Grave Talk cards are nice but they don't fit with the Death Cafe model of group directed discussion.

We have used these and found them very helpful in death cafes with the public and as part of stimulating reflection and discussion with health care staff.

Thanks for the feedback. There seems to be an expectation that the death cafe is 'facilitated' but I am avoiding that [as per Jons email]. Is this the norm? Or is it up to individuals how the local cafes develop?
