Recently Janice Turner wrote an article after attending a Death Cafe entitled “Life would be better if we faced up to death“. She explains: “Death Cafes, like bereavement groups and counselling are secular substitutes for the religion we’ve lost. Without faith it is harder to navigate mortality, to formulate new rituals rather than repeat those reassuring ancient words. It is even harder to break down the modern medical notion that death must be sanitised because it is too ghastly and somehow unhygienic to look at head on“.
