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've been delighted to recently re-open our doors and now welcome our first in-person Death Cafe back again!
About Hannah Skinner
Hannah has experienced a number of bereavements in her own life, and has walked alongside many others as lost ones have died. These experiences 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 as we all absorb the journies we've taken through the past months and years.
Through hosting this 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 and offers an inclusive and welcoming space to people of all faiths and none. This Death Cafe will have no religious imput, beyond what those coming may choose to share. Everyone is welcome.
