Online Death Cafes

Online Death Cafes pausing in June 2024  

Here at The Wisdom Space, we have been holding Death Cafes since March 2022 to provide a safe and supportive space for people to come together to talk about death and dying and what really matters. Facilitated by Sue Judge and Wisdom Space Elder Sue Brayne, these have led to very rich and rewarding conversations with people from all over the world.

However, we have decided to end these after our Summer Online Death Cafe in June so that we can redirect our focus to face-to-face events locally instead and to build upon many of the themes arising from Death Cafes such as consciousness, grief and loss, mortality and Eldership. 

If you would like to still experience a Death Cafe for yourself, we have some tickets left for our last Online Death Cafe on Jun 19th (book here) and you can find out where other Death Cafes are being held locally and online by visiting DeathCafe.com.

A little more about Death Cafes and what to expect

What is a Death Café?

Death Cafes (deathcafe.com) were set up by Jon Underwood in 2011 to provide a safe, confidential setting for people to come together to talk about death and dying and what really matters over a piece of cake and cup of tea. We’re holding it online so you can bring your own drink and relax in the comfort of your home.

What Death Cafes are not

Death Cafes are not therapy sessions or grief and bereavement groups. Rather, they provide a space to share and discuss issues related to mortality, death and dying and end of life without agendas, objectives or themes.

Your hosts

Self-Care

Death Cafes are not recommended for those who have experienced profound loss and grief within the past twelve months. It is also recommended that those struggling with mental health issues should have emotional or psychological support in place before attending a Death Cafe. 

‘Rules’

There are no ‘rules’ as such. Just turn up and be willing to engage in conversations that really matter. However, it is always requested that participants speak from their own personal experiences, e.g. using ‘I’ and ‘me’. We kindly ask that you do not speak for others, or from personal, political or religious agendas and to respect that this is not a place to sell products or promote business.

We only ask is that you agree to remain with the Death Cafe for the full two hours. 

How much does it cost?

We are grateful for all donations – however big or small. Our suggested donation of £3.50 to £5 helps us to cover our costs as a not-for-profit community interest company and to continue to provide Death Cafes for the long term. 

Taking part

Just turn up and be willing to engage in conversations that really matter to you. A zoom link will be sent nearer the time for those who sign up. Please arrive in the waiting room a couple of minutes early so that we can start on time
