"Dying to Talk
There's only one thing in life that's certain: death.
Many people believe that talking about death helps us make more out of life.
Thousands of Death Cafés have popped up in countries across the globe, challenging people to open up about the deceased and their own thoughts and fears about dying. Cafes are often over subscribed with organisers having to turn away individuals from sell out events.

The calls, emails and texts barraged us after Erin Negley's article about our first Death Cafe in January. We quickly realized the number of people who wanted to attend exceeded our venue and table facilitators - so we immediately rescueduled a second one the week following.
Erin's piece was a section lead article. Subsequently, several television stations contacted us for interviews.
And LNP - Always Lancster's editorial two day's later ("We shouldn't wait until death is near to talk about it) build huge numbers of callers for the second one. Here's the link to the editorial: http://lancasteronline.com/opinion/editorials/we-shouldn-t-wait-until-death-is-near-to-talk/article_e40ba1fa-dd0d-11e6-be26-cbfda1557db4.html
Death Cafes are a wonderful and necessary concept.

Great article, thanks again to Lucy Berry the author. Lucy has covered many of my events. Thanks to all that attended. I was surprised to have 16 attendees. Some were able to stay longer than others. There was no lack of conversation which varied from personal experiences to funeral costs and alternatives. Our cafe was held at the West End Grill in Huntsville. Those that wanted ate dinner or had drinks. The food was good and reasonably priced. We were allowed to use the restaurant's private room at no cost due to those that ordered refereshments. Over all a great even with lots of participation.

Lovely piece on our local Death Cafe. Big Thanks to Debbie Cafazzo (writer) and Peter Haley (photographer) for spending time with us, getting to know us, and sharing a beautiful story on who and what we are.
Thank you Valerie Pritchett for covering this story!

Our first Cincinnati-region Death Cafe was covered by the Cincinnati Enquirer! It's this Friday, and we can't wait.
Thanks to St. Elizabeth Healthcare Comunity Grief Support Center for providing Space, The Globe for providing the cake and Bean Haus for providing tea and coffee!

I had never heard of DC and I am excited to attend one. My medical background in hospice nursing and as a medic give me a unique perspective I'd love to share with others!

The Laguna Beach community has been extremely supportive and involved in our monthly Death Cafe gathering at our local Senior Center. It's beautiful to hear the conversations about death and fears and hopes surrounding the end of life. Thank you to all who attend regularly and if you want to, please do join. We'll welcome you gently. <3

Article about Highcliffe Death Café, writte by the host of the cafe. It appeared in The Mudeford Mag this month: "Talking about death? Isn't that a bit macabre?"
This article was well received and many people contacted me about the cafe, which was that night. 21 people attended and I had to turn people away because I didn't have space. I know have a contact list of 50= people who are interested in the next one!
A great supplementary letter was written by a fellow Death Cafe facilitator giving the Death Café information, which the reporter didn’t include. It can be found at: http://www.lfpress.com/2015/10/06/death-cafe-addresses-taboo-topic

The Ham and Hi gave a balanced view, although they described the cafe as a 'bereavement group'; it is ridiculous that, after this has run without problems for nearly 2 years, library management have censored our poster.
I am looking for an alternative venue so hopefully the death cafe will continue.
