Death Cafe & Death Over Dinner
Demystifying and de-stigmatizing dying and death. Advocating for your voice to ensure autonomy and agency at end-of-life, no matter your age.
And having fun amongst friends and other advocates in safe and inclusive settings.
Death Over Dinner
An exclusive event that does require registration. We eat, we drink, and we talk about dying, death, advanced care plans and whatever else we need.
This event is part of the "death positive" movement. What does that mean?
"People who are death positive believe that it is not morbid or taboo to speak openly about death. They see honest conversations about death & dying as the cornerstone of a healthy society. To be clear, death positive doesn’t mean you’re thrilled and “positive” after someone has died, Death positive means you should be given support during and after a death, including the ability to speak freely about your grief and experiences. It also does not ask that we simply “accept” death, but that we push back and engage with the systems and conditions that lead to “unacceptable” deaths resulting from violence, a lack of access to care, etc." (The Order of the Good Death, 2023)

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death.
Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'.
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 counseling session. (taken from Death Cafe- Impermanence, 2022)
