Follow Up for Death Cafe Newtown 19 May 18
A wonderful gathering of souls who brought orange cakes, cheeses and yummy nibbles to accompany my bucket of chai.There was definitely a thirst to know more- it seems that there is never enough time to discuss all that people , once uncorked, want to speak about on this mighty topic but its always a great start!
Feed back ranged from 'easy for each of us to open our hearts and express our deepest feelings' to 'such an amazing diversity of life stages/experiences in the room and everyone was so open' to 'I liked that the structure was flexible' to 'I've always seen death as an event to be afraid of and this conversation opened my mind to the different ways to think about death'.
The only concern was that one person needed a time limit as they took up the final time I had wanted to bring the group back to answer any final questions so as a host I will pay more attention to keeping a 10 minute max (depending on the group numbers) to allow for a final bringing together of the conversations.
All in all everyone wanted more and felt this was a positive experience!
