About this Death Cafe

Join us as we come together to talk about death and dying... and of course, to eat cake or some other tasty goodness! The objective of a Death Cafe is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives. For many, talking about death and dying can be uncomfortable. Join us for a thoughtful discussion about end of life and share your experiences, thoughts and fears about death in a relaxed setting. The Death Cafe is a group directed discussion, but not a grief support or counseling session. There is no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action. Our Death Cafe is accessible to anyone who would like to join our respectful and confidential space.
