The Clear Light Institute of Sukhasiddhi Foundation invites you to join the conversation:
A Death Cafe is an open, respectful, confidential and safe space where people can discuss death and impermanence, and reflect on what is of most importance and value in life.
We live in a culture that denies old age, sickness, death and impermanence. Death Cafe opens the discussion and aspires to provide a safe space for all of us to evolve into a society that accepts death as a part of life.
The venue is a Buddhist meditation center but this will not be a teaching event. Impermanence and death is an essential Buddhist teaching and we welcome the open discussion that increases awareness so we can make the most of our lives.
We adhere to Death Cafe guidelines of an agenda-free discussion, with the topics determined by attendees. We will provide a host and discussion facilitator.
Please come and join us for tea and cake while we discuss death. The event is free but donations are always welcomed.
On May 2nd, The Clear Light Institute held our first Death Cafe. Over forty people attended! Read our blog article to learn more about the experience of attending at Death Cafe.The Death Cafe model was developed by Jon Underwood and Sue Barsky Reid in London in September, 2011. Since then, Death Cafes have spread quickly across Europe, North America and Australasia. As of today, there are 1651 Death Cafes. These are not grief support groups or end-of-life planning sessions, but rather casual forums for people who want to explore our ideas and fears about death with others.
