About this Death Cafe

I am interested in this topic from long time, and intrigued by the rituals and experiences surrounding death. I have also worked in the area of loss and grief as a part of my PhD research and came across several experiences of people talking about death from different perspectives. Also resonate with the idea that conversationa around death need to be normalised.
