Joining in on the Last Wishes Tea Room session held in such a safe, intimate, sacred space, to discuss a very personal decision I had made, was a truly amazing experience, thank you to all who made it possible.

The Last Wishes Tea Room proved to be a safe place in which to explore questions around death and dying. Amanda’s gentle facilitation enabled me to clarify my thoughts whilst being inspired by the sharing of my fellow participants.

Purpose

Last Wishes Tea Rooms are a safe space to talk about any issues or concerns about death and dying. Our world is currently in this extraordinary state with Covid 19 highlighting heightened death rates in daily news. Awareness of our mortality has never been at such global levels in our modern age.

We cover a variety of end of life considerations, from topics with slightly heavier themes, to lighter more joyful reflections. Last Wishes Tea Rooms can gently guide end of life conversations or open your awareness to the vast variety of options available for you and your loved ones.

How to Prepare

We encourage you to take a moment before you join us in a Last Wishes Tea Room, make yourself your own calming cup of tea and join us on Zoom.

These Tea Rooms are designed to support and empower you around your end of life choices. Last Wishes Tea Rooms are not group therapy or grief counselling, but our conversations are therapeutic, real and refreshing despite the theme.

While details of conversations are confidential in the space you might find your experience a conversation starter with someone who has never been to a Last Wishes Tea Room, or a loved one who you wish to talk to more about this sensitive subject.

A Dead Rat. Poem by John Hancock

In the cold grey light of dawn
You lay silent on the path,
Cold in your unexpected end,
Your coat still glossy soft
As if you hadn’t died at all
But had simply stopped to rest.

What Our Customers are Saying about Us

Jean leaves no stone unturned, no aspect unexplained – and I had no idea it would be such fun. Under her sensitive guidance and with her extensive knowledge of what is possible… Thank you Jean, for your inspired, humorous and down to earth approach to a subject that is so often considered taboo.

Tricia in her 60s

This workshop is well worth attending as there's a mine of thought-provoking information and Jean facilitates with compassion, warmth and humour.
Marion F in her 50s

Jean's little funeral books are packed with inspiration. The reader will be hard pushed to think of things that are not included and ideas that she does not touch on.

Natural Death Centre

It was a wonderfully inspiring day, that taught me so much. I would recomend it to anyone. It was a real fun day. And at the end of it you come out with something of real value for your loved ones, when they will need it most… If you get the chance to… attend… !

Lionel P in his 60s

Attending a Last Wishes Workshop proved to be one of the best decisions I have made. It opened up the whole subject in such a lovely way and raised my awareness of alternative and loving ways to say goodbye and to honour a loved one. I so wish I had had this knowledge many years ago when my husband died. I would highly recommend this Workshop to every one.
Ella R in her 70s

It was an utter joy to meet you on Saturday and benefit from your knowledge and wisdom...
