This Death Café held on a pleasant September evening was fully booked – overbooked - but not all 42 people attended and so I think we were pretty much down to 30 or so, the normal capacity for the room.
The evening was wonderful, inspirational, moving and a positive experience all round. Cj Swaby, Liz Wong, Thom Osborn and I each facilitated a table. Halfway through the evening we took a break. We ended the evening with a ‘plenary’. On Thom’s suggestion, we made a large circle, everyone facing into the room so we could see each other. This plenary was a closing circle and a chance for anyone ...

We had another lively and interesting gathering, 10 of us altogether. Our discussion ranged from the philosphical, beliefs about the afterlife: did we meet our loved ones, or is there nothing? Other areas were sudden death, early loss of parents, losing a younger partner and organ donation. Feedback forms showed an interest in discussing dignity in death and making plans for what you want in your own funeral.
Looking forward to March 9th's meeting.
