About this Death Cafe
Come and get curious about death in a relaxed and friendly space over tea and cake or a glass of wine
Death Cafes are pop -up events which usually take place in cafes where taboos around death and dying are broken down.
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 comfortable sharing.
Honest and respectful communication is the order of the day and there is often much laughter
About London End of Life doulas
Caroline Dent, Zaidee O'Dell John Sleeman and Ninon Van der Kroft , have all trained as End of Life Doulas (a new and emerging role, providing compassionate presence and practical support for people at the end of life.
Caroline started Finsbury Park Death cafe in September 2015, having been an active participant and facilitator in other Death Cafes for some years.
Caroline suffered from death anxiety as a child, and that resulted in a lifelong enquiry into the nature of death and how it affects our living. This resulted in her volunteering with dying people, bereaved people and suicidal people in recent years.
