Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Death Cafe?
A Death Cafe is a group-directed discussion about death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

Ok, so what happens at a Death Cafe?

What kind of things will be discussed?
