What is a Death Café?
Death Cafés (deathcafe.com) were set up by Jon Underwood in 2011 to provide a safe, confidential setting for people to come together to talk about death and dying and what really matters over a piece of cake and cup of tea.

What Death Cafés are not
Death Cafés are not therapy sessions or grief and bereavement groups. Rather, they provide a space to share and discuss issues related to mortality, death and dying and end of life.

What is a Deep Adaptation Death Café?
These Death Cafés are not just about exploring how to talk openly and honestly about mortality and end of life issues. They offer an opportunity to engage with our mortality against the backdrop of cataclysmic climate change, global challenges to democracy, and the systemic and institutional collapse that will accompany those two things. The world as we know it is coming to an end, and we do not know what lies ahead. However, it is clear that people find great comfort and support as they share and deeply listen to others, also open and willing to talk about what these immense challenges mean to them. So, grab a comforting nibble and cup of something and join a Deep Adaptation Death Café to have conversations that are curious, supportive, and insightful.

Hosts:  Experienced Death Café Facilitator Lynne Westmoreland and Terry LePage

Death Cafés are not recommended for those who have experienced profound loss and grief within the past twelve months. It is recommended that those struggling with mental health issues should have emotional or psychological support in place before attending a Death Café.

What to expect
Following a warm welcome from the facilitators and introductions from the group, the facilitator will open up the space for people to share how they are experiencing the challenges and changes that are taking place, and the impact this is having on their relationship with mortality. The event will run 90 minutes.

There are no ‘rules’ as such. However, it is always requested that participants speak from their own personal experiences, e.g. using ‘I’ and ‘me’. Please do not speak for others, or from personal, political or religious agendas. And, to respect that this is not a place to sell products or promote business.  Our only ask is that you agree to remain with the Death Café for the full 90 minutes.
