Join our Death Café, where we’ll gather in order to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death and anything related to death. The objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’. Death Cafe is a religiously neutral event, open for everybody to participate and share their thoughts with each other.

ABOUT DEATH CAFÉ

A Death Café is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. This event is organized by Lhagsam members with the simple wish of bringing people together, sharing our thoughts and creating connections.

The Death Café always offers:

  • On a not-for-profit basis
  • In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
  • With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
  • Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

 


The Death Café model was developed by Jon Underwood and Sue Barsky Reid from the UK. The idea originates with the Swiss sociologist and anthropologist Bernard Crettaz (fr), who organized the first café mortel in 2004.
