International Death Cafe in English
Death Cafes are respectful and confidential spaces. It is important to understand that they are not bereavement groups, nor do they seek answers. However, talking about a topic that is not usually discussed lightens the negative feelings that socially frame death.
People are increasingly encouraged to participate, even if only out of curiosity. They then discover that talking naturally about death helps us to live more fully and with less fear of an event that will happen eventually, whether for ourselves or for others. Attending a death cafe allows us to obtain some tools to plan for and cope with death once it arrives.
Anticipating the inescapable presence of death will open the door to day-to-day freedom, because TO TALK ABOUT DEATH IS TO TALK ABOUT LIFE.
