WHAT IS A DEATH CAFÉ?
Death Cafés are open forum dialogues about death and dying, with no agenda otherwise. The aim is to bring strangers together to engage in dialogue about the last great taboo, in hopes that they will extend this dialogue to their friends, families, and communities.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Aside from coffee, tea, and treats; in a large group, the facilitator will introduce the history of the Death Café Movement, as well as the guidelines and agenda for the event.
Thereafter, participants are split into smaller groups where they are invited to choose from a list of conversation starters such as "What does legacy mean to you?; What is the last song you want to hear before you die? What does a 'good death' mean to you?" - the rest is organic.
