About this Death Cafe

The first Death Café in Gothenburg is taking place in a homely and welcoming environment, at the funeral home of Vila Begravning. The café is free with coffee/tea and cake provided. 

Death Café is a global movement in which people come together to have open and honest conversations about death and dying in a safe and non-judgemental space. The objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives. 

Our hope and purpose with this café is to open up on a subject which to many is still taboo. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. 

This Death Café is open to everyone, but space is limited, so please book your place by March 15 at the latest.

About Jenny-Ann Gunnarsson and Susanne Nilsson

Jenny-Ann Gunnarsson is an independant funeral director. With the deaths of close family members she realised how taboo it is and how little time we give to this natural, if yet sad, part of being a living human. She wanted to open up and let people in on what happens when someone is dying and has died. With knowledge, understanding and compassion from one another, it's easier to deal with life's hardships.

 Susanne Nilsson is an experienced grief recovery instructor, educated and certified at The Grief Recovery Institute in the US. She is one out of nine instructors in the world. Apart from coaching both individuals and groups, she also lectures at schools and businesses about grief. With a background as a headmaster, she is very dedicated to children and youths. It gives her great pleasure to see them thrive after they have gone through the grief method. She also lives as she teaches and has thus worked through her own experiences of grief and loss. Susanne was also Jenny-Ann's instructor at The Grief Recovery Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.
