About this Death Cafe

Now happening regularly once more, we meet on the second Friday of the month in Upton and the last Monday of each month in Malvern.  Email us for further details.

I started this Death Cafe in 2013 whilst caring for my dementia'd mum.  So I could learn more about end of life, signs to watch for.  How to accompany her in those final breaths. And learn more about this whole transition into old age and beyond. 

An article by Jon Underwood inspired me to do further research and just start a group. 

The conversation flows from who ever is there.  A safe place is held and it's always new, with more to explore.

Check out our Malvern Death Cafe facebook page, or ask to be put on our contact list to be informed about future dates and venues.


About Sue Friston and Zoe Norman

About Sue Friston

Sue worked in admin then developed into a yoga teacher, classes put on hold in 2012 when mum got dementia so I packed up and went to live near her. 

Several friends had died which prompted me to extend my life long interest in death, purpose, legacy, and conscious living.

Since mum died in 2016 I'm still easing my way through to what comes next.  

More death cafes, a gradual return to teaching yoga.  Slow, meditative ways.  Providing cake and the opportunity for people to talk to strangers about these matters continues to be a priviledge.

Zoe has also had an eclectic career:

" currently enabling bereaved people to talk about the loved ones they've lost, express their feelings, revisit happy memories and have a keepsake to treasure. I work with individuals, families or groups in workshops helping them make memory jars and books and write about their memories. I hold a Diploma in Grief and Bereavement Counselling. " 

And she plays the harp beautifully.
