I thought this was really strange at first but when I looked into it I kind of see the idea behind it.
At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. The objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'.
A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session
See the Facebook page of DeathCafeNorwich for info about the next meet up.
