Death and dying are an inevitable part of life, but we rarely talk about it. Talking about death and being open about our feelings allows us to support each other, our families and ourselves when we lose someone close.
Death Café is a global concept founded by Jon Underwood, based on the work of Bernard Crettaz in 2004. The objective of Death Café is not to be seen as morbid, but rather for people to go along, drink tea, eat cake and to ‘increase awareness of death with a view of helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.
We believe the more comfortable that people can become in talking about death and dying, the better for being able to communicate your wishes to those you love and care about. It is important to understand what options are out there, debunk any myths, and enable you to feel at ease that your plans are in place. Death Café allows us to exchange conversations about life and death and celebrate the Art of Living and Dying in a compassionate community.
Join us for our second Death Café, which is an opportunity for you to come along and discuss death and dying in a safe environment, and get answers to any questions you have. Qualified and Registered Funeral Directors, Embalmers, Celebrants and Grief Counsellors will be on hand to answer any of your questions. No suits, no presentations, just good coffee and great conversation about death care.
There is no agenda for this event, please just drop in anytime between 9am and midday and stay as long as you like.
