• What we'll do
Our Death Cafe is a group-directed conversation about death and dying over coffee and cake.
We talk about all sorts of things; funerals, natural burial, AHCPs, aging parents, DIY coffins, death doulas, creative things to do with ashes, books we've read, death in different cultures, assisted dying, near death experiences (NDEs), philosophy and the meaning of life, and our own personal experiences to name a few.
We don't promote any particular conclusion, belief system or course of action.
• What to bring
An open mind, curiousity, and a willingness to join in the conversation. NB. We are able to use the upstairs room at Lotus Heart at no charge, on the basis that we are each buy something from the cafe :-)
• I love this quote by Eckhart Tolle:
A culture that denies death inevitably becomes shallow and superficial, concerned only with the external form of things. When death is denied, life loses its depth.
