Cochrane Ideas Group will gather this June for yet another Zoom meeting. We continue to look forward to the day when we can gather in person once again.

At the last gathering of the Cochrane Ideas Group before the summer break, we welcome you to join us at a “Death Café”.  This event will be hosted and facilitated by Heinz Unger but it is expected that everybody participates.  We will sit around in a virtual circle – yes, a “live” Death Café would be preferable – eat cake and drink tea or coffee (or something more stimulating), and we will talk about death.  Such a gathering is intended to increase our awareness of death which is useful at any age, and it is hoped to help us to make the most of our lives.  There is no agenda, no objectives and no specific themes but it should rather be an open and confidential discussion, talking in a respectful manner (very much a Cochrane Ideas principle) about the unique experience of death, and there’s no intent to lead participants to any conclusions, products or any course of action.

WHAT IS DEATH CAFÉ
Death Cafés are a social franchise and are supported entirely by volunteer efforts.  More than 12,000 Death Cafés have been held all over the world over the past ten years.  The Death Café website   https://deathcafe.com/    provides much more information.

Please note that a Death Café is not meant to be bereavement support or grief counselling.
