VIRTUAL Death Cafe (Canada)
Hope you and your loved one's are healthy and safe.
Heart House Hospice had an amazing turn out and I want to thank the organizers of Death Cafe for offering this online platform to the world.
We had 23 attendees, most of us from Canada, one each from England, United States and India (Wow !! the lady who attened woke up at 4 am to attend our meet !!!). This speaks volumes of how effective this website is turning out to be.
We had break out rooms of maximum 4 people and then a whole group sharing at the end. The conversations were very interactive and thought provoking as they always turn out to be. We are humbled by everyone's positive comments and hope to contnue holding this space for all who may need it.
Though this is not a grief or beareavment group, the very fact that we can talk and listen to each others stories, that itself offers immense support to each other, especially during these uncertain and difficult times.
Also, we had participants who wished to return in the future, so that is very encouraging since their needs to communicate about Death and Dying are being fulfilled.
Acknowledging and embracing thoughts of Death and Dying truely impacts all areas of our life and helps us live more fearlessly.
