After the success of our first Death Cafe last month we are hosting our next Death Cafe in the pub. Do join us on Friday 5 July 2-3pm in the Wychwood Inn for some lively conversation.
If you are not sure what it’s all about, here are just a few of the things that came up at the last Death Cafe:
- I really must update my will.
- I have all these ideas for my funeral including lots of song choices. What do I do with them and who do I tell?
- What do you say to children if a sibling died before they were born?
- Would you prefer to be buried or cremated?
- What do you think actually happens at the moment of death?
- The sorts of things you can do at a funeral nowadays – ways to make it personal.
And here’s the blurb:
What is Death Café?
At a Death Cafe people meet to discuss death, over some refreshments, most people who attend a Death Café are surprised that the discussion is not morbid or depressing but often lively, and informative. As one person put it: Death is inevitable so why not talk about it.
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.
Death Café is offered:
– 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!
