Death Cafe Hoddesdon
Enjoyable, interesting and refreshing were just some of the words used to describe Hoddesdon’s first Death Cafe experience. A total of fourteen people gathered in the Costa Coffee Bar to talk about one of today’s biggest taboo subjects
We started in small groups for the first part of the evening. Once people had introduced themselves to each other and said why they had come, the conversations just flowed in lots of different directions. Then after a break, we came together to share some of the things we’d talked about in the individual groups.
The feedback was very positive and encouraging, with most saying they would like to come again. One lady said that she appreciated being able to have an open discussion about what is a difficult subject, whilst another person found it helpful listening to and learning about other people’s feelings and understanding about death.
Looking forward to our second Death Cafe on 29th March.
