Death Cafés

Has anyone heard about, hosted, or been part of a Death Café?

They are impromptu cafes in homes or literally in cafes, where people gather to talk about their experiences, feelings, fears, ideas, etc. about death. I've been hearing about them a lot lately and am really intrigued … given the power of the subject, I bet they can be quite amazing.

Here's an article about one held at the edge of Beachy Head – an infamous "suicide cliff" on the South Downs in East Sussex where I used to live. The article is by Claire Davies and was published in Aeon Magazine.
