Death Cafè

The next Death Café hosted by Rev Jo Royle & Sheila Hamilton will be on  Thursday 12 May (2022) 13.45 – 16.00 at An Crùbh. 

Event description: 

It is now over 2 years since our last Death Café, which was well attended so if you missed it or would like to discuss more, here is another opportunity. The Death Café model was developed by Jon Underwood and Sue Barsky Reid, based on the ideas of Bernard Crettaz. At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. The objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’. 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 counselling session.

Death Cafes are always offered:

– On a not for profit basis

– In an accessible, respectful and confidential space

– With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action

– Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

You can read more about Death Cafés here.

There is no charge for this event, but we ask you to make a small donation to pay for the hire of the hall. 

It is usual for tea/coffee and cakes to be available at a Death Café. As this is a free event and to cater for individual tastes, we are inviting people to buy their own refreshments in the café at An Crùbh.

How to register your interest:

Please let us know if you will attend so we know how many to expect. You can email: sheilamaehamilton@yahoo.comor respond on Facebook.
Thank you.
