What on earth is a Death Cafe?
"The premise was simple: people go along, drink tea, eat cake and discuss death: not to be morbid, just to raise awareness and to "help people make the most of their (finite) lives." Founder Death Cafe, Jon Underwood
What a simple, yet powerful idea! Gather together, openly discuss death and find a common experience among like-minded people. The power of having a community to discuss freely the emotions around death awareness can be powerful and profound.

Be courageous and begin your journey and find serenity and peace can be had.
