Apparently, a beautiful, sunny Saturday afternoon didn’t keep people away! With over 17 participants, 11 were first-timers. Possibly, because it was scheduled at the beginning of the (sometimes difficult) holidays or because the venue, Bridge To Avalon, “is a “spiritual center & collaborative environment for the healing arts” ...either way, people arrived ready to share. And share they did!
It was a deeply emotional afternoon, with discussion relating to profound loss, resistive acceptance, deep sorrow & rage.
Comments included: ok to be angry, thankful for the conversation, healing, expanded perspective/compassion, very uplifting, less prompting from the facilitator, meet more often please!
Am hoping to schedule the next Low Country Death Cafe in mid January. Better to get together sooner than later in this climate...
