About this Death Cafe
At a Death Cafe people gather to discuss death in a friendly safe and non-judgemental space, over food and drink. Come along and join us for a life affirming experience ! Our death Cafe is open to everyone, regardless of belief, creed, culture. We meet as equals who one day will die.
End of Life Doulas believe passionately in bringing Death out of the closet, and enabling conversations around this much feared event, which we are all destined to face eventually. We feel that by broaching the subject before we are in our dying days, we can begin to release some of the fear that it holds for so many of us, and hopefully enable us to live more fully and more joyfully in the present.
