AMIDA DEATH CAFE WITH BHAKTIKA
2:30pm – 3:30pm
[on 25th Jan, 29th Feb & 28th Mar]
The Death Cafe movement was started in London in 2011. It was inspired by the ideas of Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz who had run Cafe Mortal events in France and Switzerland. Death Cafes have now taken place in over 66 countries around the world. The mission of a Death Cafe is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.
A Death Cafe is always run on a not for profit basis and has no agenda, objectives or themes. It is not a counselling session and there are no outcomes or conclusions to be drawn. It’s simply an opportunity to talk openly about death in a safe and non-judgmental space… with (virtual) tea and cake, of course.
