This event was a great success. About ten people attended, and lots of interesting discussions took place. Thanks to everyone who came, and hopefully the next one that shall be held in January will be just as good!
Hello All! Just wanted to update and say I held the very first official Death Cafe group here in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotalnd.

Dieses Death Café war ein besonderes Highligt. Wir hatten "Ehrengäste" die extra aus Graz angereist waren. Wir hatten Aileen zu Gast, die extra aus Linz angereist war und wir hatten Jella zu Gast, die das 1. Wiener Death Café veranstaltet hat. Darüber hinaus hatten wir12 wunderbare, interessante und originelle Menschen zu Gast, die diese zwei Stunden mit uns verbracht haben. Für mich eine Bereicherung und ich freue mich schon auf unser nächste Death Café im Jänner!

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 ...
Death Cafe came relatively early to Austria. Jella Jost’s motivation for initiating the first Death Cafe in Vienna, however, had less to do with Vienna’s reputation for being a rather morbid city, but more with her personal experience with her mother’s death. When she came across Jon Underwood’s description of Death Cafe, it seemed to be just what she was looking for, but since there was no Death Cafe nearby yet ...

Fourteen participants gathered on Saturday for the first Death Cafe Orleans. The sharing was at once brave, profound, tender, and even hilarious at times.
