Dignity, Natural burial and The Crossing

A write up of Glasgow Death Cafe

By Bob Stoner

When you attend a meeting there is normally an agenda, something to look to agree upon. Today, everyone brought their own personal agenda, they sought to find understanding, perhaps a bit of peace. We discussed natural burial grounds and whether they offered dignity: 

Did this offer sufficient dignity to their loved one if people were walking possibly over them; 
but how might that compare when scattering ashes on a golf course?

We compared this with mentions from From Her to Eternity by Caitlin Doughty, wrt Japan

The Death Cafe meets again at G431LH, in the Church, between 12-1pm on Tuesday 14th February.
