What brings you to Death Cafe?

Death is often taboo in our society, yet it's a part of life. It will happen to us all and will touch us all many times before that. I believe it's always healthier to speak about the things that trouble us and that's why I was inspired to run death cafes. The ones I've hosted have been incredibly life-affirming, thought-provoking and often lots of fun, and I have enjoyed getting to meet others in my local community.
And there's tea and cake...

A lovely Death Cafe with nine people attending, we had an upbeat conversation about how medics approach the dying and their relatives, and talked about funerals in different cultures.

A group of 12 gathered at The Willow on a sunny afternoon. Everyone brought lots of different thoughts about death, dying and grief, and we had a lively, rich conversation. There were some tears, I think due to the very comfortable, supportive nature of the group - and lots of laughter. Thanks to everyone who came and opened up x

This was the first Death Cafe I'd hosted and it was a fantastic way to spend 90 minutes on a Saturday afternoon! We had a group of 11 and spanned a sweeping panorama of topics, from soul midwifery and paganism to the taboo of grief and how the loss of community has impacted on bereavement. The Willow was a relaxed venue with great muffins! Thanks to all who came.
