We had lots of new people at our most recent Death Cafe, which was a useful reminder that there are still lots of people who don't know anything about Death Cafes (yet) and are curious.  We talked about clearing clutter from our lives, getting rid of 'things', and also from the other angle of inheriting items from others who have died, and what to do with them. We also talked about illness, pain, and suicide, which we agreed is still a taboo subject - although not at a Death Cafe. The discussion also included the idea of living mindfully, which sprang from the idea of wanting to make ...

The conversation in our recent Death Cafe touched on subjects we hadn't visited before. For instance, objects: those things we leave behind us, or things we are left by those who have died. What do we do with them? How do we start the process of clearing 'stuff' we don't want to burden our nearest and dearest with? And private things, such as letters - precious to us now, but perhaps distressing to others when we are not there to put them in context. Our digital legacy: what will happen to our Facebook and other social media accounts? All interesting questions, which led to the concept of ...

Our second Death Cafe was a pleasantly relaxed affair, with some familiar faces and some new ones. We discussed a range of topics, including some 'what we've done since the last Death Cafe' items. There were some laughs as we discussed the idea of make-your-own-coffin workshops and what that could lead to. I'm learning that what we discuss at Death Cafes can be any and all of these: serious, interesting, weird, passionate, moving, fascinating, shocking, intriguing, even laugh-out-loud-funny. Roll on the next one!

Elle and I held our first Death Cafe in Totnes on 28/1/18. We were happy to have 28 people attend and the session went really well with different issues being shared and discussed. Refreshmnents were a great success and we're now looking forward to the next one in March.
