About this Death Cafe

Death cafes are respectful spaces for the discussion of all aspects of death, dying, and living with the conscious awareness of death. The event is based on group oriented discussion, and is simply put a place for people to share ideas, feelings, experiences, questions, concerns, and to honour death in our lives. Our aim is to increase awareness of death to help people make the most of their (finite) lives. Death cafe's are not grief groups, but rather to break the social taboo against speaking about death openly and with others.

 This is the Than Clan’s final major event for the winter academic term.  Cake, fruit, and other sweets will also be provided for your pleasure! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Email us at:
