The Need for More
The first Death Cafe organized in Poland took place in a pleasant Warsaw café called (in a free translation) “Price of Inconsistency”. Eleven persons, man and women attended the event. The discussion went for two hours and floated around the themes of what gives us strength while facing death of our close ones, can we prepare for death – our own and that of the others, how is death seen in other cultures and traditions and last but not least, is the feeling of guilt inscribed in the experience of those who stay alive, when their family or friends died. Towards the end of the meeting, participants expressed the need to continue as we had the feeling that we have just scratched the top of the mountain and there is a need to go deeper.
