About this Death Cafe

The “D” word has been a taboo topic yet talking about Death can be one of the most eye-opening conversations you’ll ever have.

A Death Cafe is an opportunity for people from all walks of life to gather, have a cuppa and discuss death in a relaxed, non-denominational setting. In normalising the topic of Death, it is possible to find freedom and a renewed sense of aliveness.

We will make time and space to connect and discuss the end of life. Facilitated by Death Doula, Dina Smirnova, expect to discuss death in small groups with no agenda, objectives or themes. Your curiosity, willingness to share (or just listen) and presence are welcome.

Please be mindful that the Cafe starts at 6.30 pm with guidelines around the discussion.
