What is a Death Café?
We are a group of people, often strangers, we gather to eat cake, enjoy tea and discuss death. It’s that simple
A Death Café 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.
A Death Café is a scheduled, non-profit get-together to escape the taboo of discussing death & dying.
We are participating in the Death Café movement, a life-affirming international social franchise started 9 years ago by Jon Underwood in London and later popularized by Lizzy Miles in the United States. Underwood developed the Death Café model based on the ideas of the Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz who, together with his anthropologist wife, studied funeral rites in their town and other cultures. When Crettaz’s wife died in 1999, he initiated meetings in local bistros to talk about death.
Death Cafes have spread quickly! As of today, there are 11552 Death Cafes in 73 countries since September 2011.
Death Café has no staff. We are run on a voluntary basis.
So, join us, your local WEST PASCO DEATH CAFE! Let’s chat… and eat delicious cake!
