Virtual Death Cafes

 

THINKING ABOUT TAKING YOUR DEATH CAFE ONLINE?

We've received a little flurry of emails asking about Virtual Death Cafes; how to plan, what works and what doesn't. The emails are coming to me from the main death cafe website where we've been posting our Virtual Death Cafes since January.

I thought it might be helpful to share some information here for any other hosts who are thinking about taking their Death Cafe's online.

Zoom is an excellent platform for these conversations. We generally get 40 to 50 people interested and far fewer who actually show up. About a third of those who express an interest. I like to have at least 10 people for good conversation flow. But as you know, it doesn’t really matter how many there are, it’s always a valuable event.

They run just like an in-person Death Cafe except there are sadly no hugs

Collaborative Hosting?

Hi,

I’m a former hospice bereavement worker and I have enjoyed death cafes. I’m thinking of hosting one virtually and saw in the guidelines that two practitioners are recommended. How could I find someone interested in co-hosting a virtual cafe?

Thanks!
