Death Cafe profile for Naomi
This was a particularly interesting Death Cafe. Although we had said that the group should be no more than 15 people, 19 people turned up and many had not confirmed. The conversation was spilt in two parts people who wanted to debate the laws around dying, paperwork etc and then people who wished to discuss the spirituality around death. Four people repeated those who had been in the first one. Ages ranged from 30 to 85 a very nice intergenerational activity.
Very enriching evening and looking forward to organising one death cafe every 2 months with the hope to organise one monthly.

As in many societies speaking about death is taboo but thanks to the creators of deathcafe this gives us a simple recipe of coming together and chatting, laughing or crying ...
