About this Death Cafe
Hannah has previously facilitated Death Cafes and has seen the positive place that they provide for people who want to talk about death. We have hosted previous Death cafe's here at Milk & Honey cafe - the non-profit cafe run by St Peter's House. Milk & Honey is a perfect venue for Death Cafe - it is a warm, calm and uplifting place, and we're so looking forward to one day re-opening our doors and welcoming future Death Cafe's back into the cafe again! Until then.... see you on Zoom.
About Hannah Skinner
Hannah has experienced a number of bereavements in her own life, including the death of her 21 year old brother. Her own experiences, as well as walking alongside close friends as they've been bereaved, have made Hannah very aware of the importance of safe spaces to be open about death and the realities of loss.
Hannah works as part of the Chaplaincy team at St Peter's House, based in the heart of the Manchester Universities. Through conversations with students and the wider community as we've all charted the uncertain seas of Covid-19 together, the team are increasingly aware of the need for space to share stories and experiences, for honest discussion, and for open-minded and compassionate listening in these hardest of times.
Through hosting this online Death Cafe Hannah hopes that people will find companionship, mutual support and comfort as we discuss the painful but unavoidable realities of life - and what happens when it ends - particularly in this covid context,
St Peter's House is a registered charity located in the middle of the University area of Manchester, and offer an inclusive and welcoming space to people of all faiths and none. This online Death Cafe will have no religious imput, beyond what those coming may choose to share. Everyone is welcome.
