Very exciting event!
This was my first Death Cafe, and it was so much more than I had expected. We had 15 attendees and conversation that was interesting, insightful, unexpected, funny and poignant. People participated enthusiastically, and expressed real gratitude for being able to talk about death without a need either for euphemisms or being careful not to upset someone by being too direct. There were nurses attending who expressed their frustrations around dealing with death in the medical setting. I also found that, by introducing myself a hospice nurse, people had many, many questions and appreciated the opportunity to have them answered. There was such a large response, that I'm planning on hosting another soon.
