At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. The objective is to offer an accessible, respectful and confidential space for discussion of this subject 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'. As part of Time for Tea St Albans Museums will be hosting two Death Cafe sessions in August (booking open now) and October (booking open shortly).
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.
The Death Cafe movement has spread quickly across Europe, North America and Australasia - since September 2011 there have been 13569 Death Cafes in 81 countries.
