Death Cafe Picnic at Brookwood - Lunchtime
We had 17 people for the death cafe, seated in 3 group on picnic blankets with supplied with chocolate brownies (with a portion of lemon drizzle for someone who doesn't like chocolate.) There were good conversations and participants could have kept talking beyond our DC session time, some did. There were a mixture of funeral professionals and members of the public. Chats ranged from what people might like for their own funerals, and exchanging personal stories and thoughts, to the ways that people mourn and how the bereaved often feel that they are being avoided by others.
