What is Death Cafe?
At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to drink tea and discuss death.
Our objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their finite lives. A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.
Our Death Cafes are always offered by Donation and in an accessible, respectful and confidential space with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action. Stephen Garrett is facilitating this circle ( www.AliveInDeath.com ).
