Questions when conversation is stuck

Posted by Natalia on June 30, 2021, 5:16 p.m. 3 comments



Hi, I am planning to run my fisrt Death Cafe and wondering if anyone experiences that conversation was stuck at one point. I am worried there will be uncomfortable silence. Any tips on how to avoid it and bring the discussion back, any specific topics, leading questions? I am aware the guide mentioned- no agenda but 3-4 questiong that might push the conversation, would be useful. Am I correct?

Many thanks!

respira

como facilitador te recominedo que esperes a que el publico rompa ese espacio "incomodo" y muchas veces muy valioso. Respira desde la tranquilidad de que todo esta bien, si ha llegado ese momento, abrazalo

Some Sample Questions

A few good questions:
1. Is anyone noticing any feelings or thoughts coming up that they would like to share?
2. Has anyone experienced something new in the past few weeks?
3. Has anyone come across any interesting resources, articles, poems, etc. about death recently?
4. Does anyone had any self-care or grounding rituals that have been helping them lately?
Hope those are useful :)

stuck

I also think that 3-4 questions would be helpful (only if people get stuck)
