It does sound a bit intimidating: Meet me in the Death Café.
There is indeed a Death Café movement. Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz had the idea for informal discussion groups about death 14 years ago, he said in a 2010 interview recorded, of course, in a café. “I come from a mountain background, where people start talking about death when they are just little children,” he said. “I wanted to reproduce that — but where? I’d prefer a public square, but then someone suggested the café. It was a place where people shared intimacies, but in a relaxed way.”
