Be Mindful of Death & Live Fully

History of Death Cafe

In 2011, Jon Underwood founded Death Cafe based on the ideas of Bernard Crettaz, and held the first Death Cafe in his home in London. 

The objective of Death Cafe is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'. 

Since, Death Cafes have spread quickly across World. As of today there have been 15545 Death Cafes in 83 countries. A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. 

On 8 Oct 2020, we started first Death Cafe at new market office in Auckland. The opening of this death coffee became the first  to break the taboo among Chinese and Asian  community.

In 2021, Death Cafe was invited to hold  every first Saturday each month at Epsom library. Participants expanded from the  Chinese community to various ethnic groups.
