A Death Cafe May Be Setting Up Shop In Central London
Ever wish there was a cozy, centrally-located space where you could philosophizing on the post-mortum with other morbidly-minded individuals? Well our British friends may soon be able to do just that with the opening of a crowd-funded Death Cafe in central London.
A non-profit that already has locations in 32 countries, the group's mission is "to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the best of their (finite) lives," over tea, of course.
But why? According to founder Jon Underwood in an interview with Dazed, the way society currently talks about death is less than ideal, seeing as how, "It's almost eliminated from sight and the main way we consume death is through news, and it's shocking and horrifying and weird," he said. "The death cafe is about reflecting how people really feel about it."
