Like to hold your own Death Café? Read the Guide

Death Café have published a practical guide to holding your own Death Café.

The Death Cafe model was developed by Jon Underwood and Sue Barsky Reid, based on the ideas of Bernard Crettaz. Death Café has no staff and is run on a voluntary basis by Jon Underwood in Hackney, East London. 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 Cafés 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 and alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

The online guide outlines the practicalities of hosting a Death Café including how to organise the venue, find a facilitator and publicise your event. Read more at Death Café’s website.
