An Online Death Cafe
About this Death Cafe
Death is generally considered a taboo subject in Western culture. Our objective is to increase awareness of death and explore how this may enhance our everyday well-being.
Due to the situation with Covid-19 this Death Cafe will be held online using www.zoom.us
Please sign up on Eventbrite for login details
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED
TO DO TO SET UP ZOOM TO JOIN
Follow this simple step by step guide:
* Zoom is very user friendly and we will all work together to help each other with this alternative Death Cafe; so if you are not computer savvy, as long as you can get into the chat do not be nervous and think it isn't for you. Have a go we really want to see you.*
1) Download the Zoom app to your mobile phone or sign up at www.zoom.us on you computer; this is free.
- If you download on your computer it is better as you can see everyone who is there at the same time.
- On your phone you just see the person who is talking which still works but if you have the choice I would go the computer route as long as you have a camera and microphone on your computer, which most do.
2) Prior to the meeting please make sure your settings are all set to enable video and audio.
3) Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the login details in advance.
3) Very Important - Make a drink and grab a snack of your choice.
4) Please be comfortable that this gorup is a secure, safe space.
Death Cafe's are discussion groups rather than grief support or counselling sessions.
