About this event

Living though a global pandemic has shone a spotlight on everyone’s mortality and there has never been a greater need to be more comfortable with talking about death and dying.

The objective of this Death Café is to promote talking about death and dying in our communities, and help people make the most of their finite lives, through 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, that aims to increase awareness of death. Individuals can discuss their understanding, thoughts, dreams, fears and all other areas of death and dying.

Death Cafes help to relax the taboo of speaking about death, particularly with strangers, and encourage people to express their own wishes for after they die. The open-ended discussions also provide an avenue to express thoughts about one's own life.

Join for a friendly, informal session to chat with others about any aspect of death that you would like to explore.

This session is hosted by Lesley Bull. To register click here.
