Death Cafe Dunedin - 28 July 2019
We met for the first time at a cafe that overlooks the sea. Sixteen people came and the room was packed to capacity. Several people said that they had eagerly waited for a Death Cafe to be established in Dunedin. Some people were involved in caring for the dead and dying and people close to them: an embalmer, a funeral director, a funeral celebrant, an elder lawyer, a rest home carer and a pharmacist. But others were just people interested in death and dying. Everyone could swap stories and share insights because death affects us all.
