Death Cafes

I had heard about Death cafes for the first time last year. One of my friends brought it up.I saw the article in the Observer Anyone for tea and sympathy? Death cafes embrace last taboo, I have worked in bereavment counselling for 20 years, but missed the Memo on Death cafes. One of these days I must go to a death cafe, so that I have some understanding for myself, my clients and my supervisees.  I missed the Ideal death show. Maybe next time.

 Attitudes to death are certainly changing. When I worked with the terminally ill, death was something that was discussed openly, people organising their own funerals, and paying for them years in advance. These days it seems more people have made these arrangements.
