Bas Sona- "have a good death". In Celtic Spirituality, 'having a good death carries the same meaning of 'having a good life'. It's one and the same.

Why do I attend Death Cafe?  Well for one thing, when Death finally does truly come to take me at the end of my life, I want to recognize it, look at it and know it even as friend. I want a familiar feeling with it. I attend Death Cafes because where else can I speak of such things? I attend Death Cafe to share that I may have come acquainted with Death on a couple of occasions and wondered how I survived its closeness. There was much wisdom in this encounter. Where else can I speak of such things? I wonder what stories & wisdom are out there in our community just waiting to be shared? -barb o'neil

The  objective  of  Death  Café is  to ‘increase  awareness  of  death with  a  view  to  helping  people  make  the  most  of  their  (finite)  lives

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, 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 counseling session.

Our Death Cafes are always offered:
- On a not for profit basis
- In an accessible, respectful and confidential space

- As an open, respectful and confidential space where people can express their views safely.
- With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
- Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

Death Cafe is not a bereavement support or grief counseling setting. Death Cafe doesn't work for people who, for whatever reason, aren't able to discuss death comfortably and openly. There are many projects better set up for this.

• Death Cafes aren't an opportunity to give people information about death and dying - regardless of how good or important it is.
