About this Death Cafe

Death is all around us, but we do not like to talk about it. That is actually quite odd. Of course, death is not a fun subject. But it has a central place in a human life more than anything else. People change through it. People become who they are, by experiencing death around them or when it is facing themselves. And that is why it is good to talk about death sometimes. Not because you have a problem. Or because you need help. But just: with a cup of coffee.

 

We will do this at Stroom Academy. Talk about death. Led by the founders of Death Café Netherland Gerko Tempelman and Trui Simmelink. In the first half hour they tell about the worldwide movement of the Death Café. And why they started it in The Netherlands. We will talk to each other in the three quarters afterwards. Very simple, with only one question: 'What is your experience with death?' Join. It could be live changing. 

 

Start: 11.00

Address: Willemsstraat 39, Amsterdam
