Tea, Cake, and Death: Death Cafe Taunton to meet on 31 August

Following a successful and well-attended May meeting of Death Cafe Taunton, organisers are planning another, to be held on Saturday, 31 August, 2019, at the Creative Innovation Centre, Taunton, from 2 to 4 pm.
 
Death Cafe Taunton is an opportunity for individuals to come together and discuss all aspects of death, in a relaxed and respectful setting. Adults of any age and experience are invited to attend, to enjoy refreshments and talk about death, dying, and beyond.
 
Nicole Stanfield Caile, organiser of Death Cafe Taunton, said this about the event: “Discussion about death needn’t be scary or morbid. The fact is that death will affect us all, but we’re woefully unprepared for when it does happen, due to a reluctance to talk about it. Death Cafe is a great way to open up and continue that conversation, in a relaxed and supportive environment. “
 
Death Cafe is a global movement, with the aim of increasing awareness of death and to help people make the most of their lives. It was started by Jon Underwood in the UK in 2011, based on the work of Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz. It exists today as a not-for-profit social franchise, with death cafes popping up all the time, all over the world.
