About carmel dunmall
A spiritual teacher once said that our time here on earth is a time to learn about ourselves. What can death teach the living? A death cafe is a place to begin to unravel the mystery, to relax into the process, learn to trust the natural law.
I remember as a small child suddenly realising that myself, my mum, my dad, my brother, my grandparents, everyone will die one day. That realisation really upset and scared me. As an adult I’ve been present when family members and also a friend has died. I found the experiences very intimate and very moving, but also a privilege in some way. A reminder that this will happen to me one day. To me, talking about death, bringing it out into the open, makes it less scary, more of a mystery.
My training as a psychotherapist is in Psychosynthesis: a holistic, integrative model. I have had a personal mindfulness practice for over 30 years. Chronic feelings of unhappiness, despair and depression frequently persist without obvious reasons or causes. Some people simply feel that they are drifting and would like a deeper sense of purpose and meaning in their lives. Open discussion about death can help with this.
