Death Cafe Training

15 April 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

At a Death Cafe, people (often strangers) gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death in a relaxed atmosphere. The objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives and be able to face their own death and that of loved ones without fear.

If you or your organisation would like to learn how to run a Death Café, come along to this free course with Catherine Ooi.

Morning tea will be served.

The course is free, but registration essential as there are limited numbers.

Location: Tara Hall, at the rear of Buddha House.
Enquiries: Contact

Buddha House acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We pay our respects to elders, past, present and future, as well as all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – their country, culture, and community.
