Online Death Cafés

A Death Café (whether online or in person) is a casual atmosphere enhanced by the enjoyment of your favourite beverages and food where people can gather to discuss the topics of death and dying. As an End of Life Doula, Michelle will be hosting more Death Cafés virtually via Zoom monthly! 



The next one is on Saturday, October 3rd at 11:00am CDT (12pm EST/9am PST/5pm GMT).

There will be no speakers and no theme to these meetings. Michelle will facilitate  and encourage open discussion about death and dying, where people can share their thoughts and feelings. Because we live in a ‘death denying’ society, these topics are often difficult to discuss, but by meeting in the comfort of our own homes we may be able to connect and engage with others. It is important to understand that Death Cafés are not grief support groups, and the facilitator will not be offering counselling. Resources will be available for those who would like information that may help them on their unique paths.

Our first ever Animal Companion Death Café will be a safe place for us to discuss the importance and meaning regarding our beloved animal friend’s journeys of dying and death.

1.2 Our principles are that Death Cafes are always offered:

• With no intention of leading participants to any conclusion, product or course of action.

• As an open, respectful and confidential space where people can express their views safely.

• On a not for profit basis.

• Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

1.3 It’s also worth stating here what Death Cafes is not:

• Death Cafe is not a bereavement support or grief counselling 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. Rather we create time to discuss death without expectations. For this reason having guest speakers and information materials available is actively discouraged.

• Death Cafe doesn’t work as a method of community engagement, research or consultation. It shouldn’t be used for these purposes.

We have established this structure to keep Death Cafe positive. This is also to prevent the use of this concept by those with an interest in leading people to conclusions, products or a specific course of action.
