Death Cafe profile for Bernadetta
Location: United Kingdom
I'm a dancer, daughter, artist, girlfriend, sister, friend... simply a conscious human being. I keep on searching for who am I and what is my purpose, and what healing I can offer in the future...
I'm an apprentice with The School of Movement Medicine and something is calling me to bring people togehter to share experiences, views and...my cakes:)
What brings you to Death Cafe?
Here is an invitation to meet and to talk, to feel and to fear, to laugh and to cry, to taste the cake and to tame the death.
No agenda, except the death-life-rebirth cycle.
''As long as we are alive, we feel fear. (...) Facing fear is a life long training in letting go of all we cling to - it is a training in how to die. (...) In time we find that we can indeed handle fear, including that deepest fear of loosing life itself.'' T.Brach
Thoughts for sharing:
''This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meannes, Some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome them all!...
The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.'' Rumi

Hello there and Happy New Year:)
I talked today about death quite a lot with a friend and realised how helpful it was to share the experience and stories.
It dawned me that a friend told me last year about a Death Cafe and that he would be interested if ...
