On this occasion we sit at virtual tables, in breakout rooms, with 5 people on each table facilitated by a member of the KSDL Bardo Group. The Death cafe is an opportunity to explore your unheard views on death and to listen and delight in the views of others on the same subject. The objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12px; color: black; font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;">A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group and is not a grief support or counselling session.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12px; color: black; font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Our Death Cafes are always offered:</span></p> <ul><li><span style="font-size: 12px; color: black; font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> On a not for profit basis</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12px; color: black; font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> In an accessible, respectful and confidential space</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12px; color: black; font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12px; color: black; font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!</span></li> </ul><p><span style="font-size: 12px; color: black; font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-style: italic;">Please note, there are only 15 places available.
