In the attempt to defeat death man has been inevitably obliged to defeat life, for the two are inextricably related. Life moves on to death, and to deny one is to deny the other.
— Henry Miller
At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat snacks, drink tea and discuss death. 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 counselling session.
The objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives. Through these sessions, we will attempt to bring death out of the closet so that we can learn to examine this part of our lives naturally and directly. Our next session, on October 7, will try to look at death in a very personal context, encouraging us to look at and share thoughts and emotions about our own death.
