It’s not always easy to bring up the subject of death or loss in conversation, even though it’s a part of everyone’s life. At a Death Café gathering you can talk openly with others in a safe and relaxed setting.
Everyone is welcome to join us for something to drink, some snacks and some good conversation! There is no particular theme so you’re welcome to bring in any topic around death you’d like to talk about. People speak about topics like, “how I’d like my funeral to be” or “why I’m afraid of death” or “losing a parent.” We always try to make sure that everyone has space to speak.
We always hear from participants that it’s so helpful not only to share stories but to hear about other people’s experiences.
If both Dutch and English speakers come, the group may be split to accommodate everyone.
