What brings you to Death Cafe?

Death is often taboo in our society, yet it's a part of life. From my own experience, I've learned it's always healthier to speak about the things that trouble us and to bring our shadows into the light - and in this spirit, I was inspired to run death cafes. I was born and raised in the Kingston area and think this is a great way to spend time with people in my community.
Also, I love tea and cake.

A group of 12 gathered at The Willow on a sunny afternoon. Everyone brought lots of different thoughts about death, dying and grief, and we had a lively, rich conversation. There were some tears, I think due to the very comfortable, supportive nature of the group - and lots of laughter. Thanks to everyone who came and opened up x

This was the first Death Cafe I'd hosted and it was a fantastic way to spend 90 minutes on a Saturday afternoon! We had a group of 11 and spanned a sweeping panorama of topics, from soul midwifery and paganism to the taboo of grief and how the loss of community has impacted on bereavement. The Willow was a relaxed venue with great muffins! Thanks to all who came.
