The idea of ‘Death Café’ came from a sociologist named Bernard Crettaz, Jon Underwood has transformed this into a worldwide movement. ‘Let’s sit with a group of people in a cafe some who already know each other and some who do not and talk about death’. Hmm, it’s kind of weird. I would be lying if I said that I met with a reaction like ‘Ah, super, should I come too?’ when I mentioned ‘I’m going to the death café’.
I attended three times and got new ideas about the outcome of this mortal body after death: presenting the post-mortem body for medical service in England can save the survivors from the burden of the funeral which is quite high. Of course, this request has to be made in the correct format in your will to be accepted by the medical authorities.
