Death Cafe

A safe space to talk about death, grief, loss and dying without expectations

We are all going to die but how often do we talk about it? It’s uncomfortable and often a taboo subject.

But if you’d like to talk about death openly, I facilitate a monthly Death Café in Keighley.

These sessions are a confidential, safe space to talk about death, grief, loss and dying. The structure is open with the aim of starting conversations around death safely and sensitively, with humour and lots of tea and cake.

Following the format of Death Cafe UK, the discussions at my Death Café sessions are directed by those in the group, whatever you want to talk about. There is no fixed agenda, objectives or themes and there is no intention of leading you to take any course of action.

But it’s worth bearing in mind that these Death Café sessions are for discussions, they are not grief support or counselling sessions – there are other people offering those.

The Death Cafe model was developed by Jon Underwood and Sue Barsky Reid, based on the ideas of Bernard Crettaz with the objective ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.
