About this Death Cafe

I love the way that Death Cafes give people a place to talk about something that even their closest friends and families might not want to discuss.

Older people have told me,"My children won't talk about death; they say, 'It's too upsetting,' or I'm busy - send me an email,' or 'You've got years in you yet!'"

And younger people say 'My parents just brush it off. If I try to talk about funerals they say, 'Just put me out with the recycling,' and if I askeabout wills it's 'What are you after?'

Death Cafes give everyone t echance to speak and listen. No agenda, just a chance to talk.
