About this Death Cafe
Because living well and dying well are interlinked but we don't often get a chance to talk about the dying part - and sharing ideas and questions over free tea and cake is a good place to start.
Frome Death Cafe is sponsored by Health Connections Mendip and Dorothy House Hospice Care.

Taking refuge I committed to entering my Buddhist training 65 yrs ago at the age 16yrs.
During my career I held various positions Including leading a department in a college of further education and running a number of small businesses.

I am one of three Co. Founders of Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery which we have built in the foot hills of the Himalayas over the last 20yrs,it now offers a safe home, full Dharma education and training for today’s 108 nuns, with the unique opportunity of reaching further personal path towards Togdama.
Since returning to the UK I have been offering Death Cafe’s in Bath and Widcombe and
Involved with Glastonbury and Bristol, over the last three years. Ive also taken training as a End Of Life Dula, attend the conference and lectures at the Centre for Death & Society Bath University.
