Death Café

We are organising a Death Cafe! At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death.

WHEN: May 19, 2019 15:00 – 17:00
CATEGORY: Get together
LEVEL: Everybody is welcome!

The objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.

A Death Cafe 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 Cafes are always offered:

  • 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 Cafe 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.


About the Death Café: This is a religiously neutral event, open for everybody to participate and share

Level: No prior knowledge required

Language: We speak German and English.

Registration: No registration necessary, just pass by!

Cost:Free entrance (donations welcome)
