Death Cafe - 10 May
We appreciate the work of Jon Underwood in starting the Death Cafes and inspiring others to embrace Death, this often difficult subject.The overall objective of a Death Café is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.
The Death Cafe doesn't have specific topics, set questions or guest speakers. It is a group directed session offering participants time to reflect on and share what they think is important.
Being aware of impermanence and the frailty of existence can help us appreciate our lives more, and wake us up to the importance of making use of the opportunities we have, while we still have them.
Places need to be booked in advance, as the numbers are limited.
Please arrive early. It will start with an introduction and latecomers will not be able to enter.
- It is a group directed discussion with no agenda or theme.
- It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or a counselling session.
- On a not for profit basis, by donation for tea and cafe
- In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
- With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
- Alongside refreshing drinks and cake. We are based in a Buddhist Centre but the Death Cafe is open to all.
- It is a secular experience, we follow the model started by Jon Underwood.
Spaces are limited and you will need to book a seat in the Death Cafe. You can do this by emailing the office and stating which cafe you'd like to attend.
