About this Death Cafe
Caroline suffered from anxiety as a child, and that resulted in a lifelong enquiry into what death is and how it affects our living. She has been involved in The Death cafe movement since the early days, and in September 2015 she decided to set up a Death Cafe in Finsbury Park. Death Cafes are life enhancing events where taboos are broken down and authenticity and truth shines out.
We meet simply as people united in the fact that we are all one day going to die. We talk in small groups and share only what we feel to share. There is often much laughter.
