We gathered from Australia, NOLA, East Coast USA, and SF Bay Area.
Lori Goldwyn and Jim Kirkpatrick hosted this Cafe, welcoming participants from Australia, New Orleans, East Coast and the SF Bay Area. We randomly broke our group into rooms with 8 people. Laughter and tears and satisfaction. A first Death Cafe for a few participants Most found us via our sponsor Jewish Gateways and others word of mouth. Sharing, caring and deep listening, leaving space for silence and for all to speak. We spoke of loving someone who is dying, grieving, end of life planning with a parent, living wakes, planning our own memorial, ethical wakes and ethical wills. Handling the "things" of the deceased loved one. We will return on December 26th.
