First East Kent Death Cafe Pop-up
A lively discussion between 14 attendees at our first event. We talked about assisted dying; talking to children about death and the importance of clarity in the language we use; having a terminal illness and the comfort of having a friend who you can be really open with and talk to; we talked about the connection strangers can have after they've experienced a shared trauma; we talked about dying of a broken heart when couples die very quickly one after the other; we talked about the grieving experience after losing a parent and how it can change you as a person.
Some attendees said they were skeptical of what a death cafe would be but after attending are now looking forward to the next one.
Thank you to The Quarterhouse in Folkestone for kindly allowing us to use their cafe to host this event.
