Dunstable's First Death Cafe

The first Death Cafe session in Dunstable went much better than expected. There were a couple of reservations in advance but after we started we had gotten to a nice group of 9 (including the facilitator).

The topics we discussed were funeral rites in different cultures and religions, we touched upon the topic of cremation vs. burial, as well as what does it mean to respect the wishes of the dead when planning a funeral.

Overall it was a rich discussion and everyone's feedback was overwhelmingly positive. It is a relief as we have been planning on having the meetings on a monthly basis but were not sure how it would be received.
