This was a really great experience. We had a mix of personalities at our first death cafe.
There were a lot of questions about end of life planning, and a couple of the attendees said that after hearing some stories, they wanted to do more planning of their end of life wishes.
I hope next time that we focus more on the metaphysical and religious aspects of death but I loved the practical questions. After all, that's the reason I started my journey on this path.
Next time we are holding it in a different venue to see if a different parking situation encourages more attendees. All in all, I loved listening to people's questions and concerns.
We had multiple death industry professionals in attendence, so I think the people who weren't in the industry got a good amount of information. A few people even want to help volunteer at a local funeral home.
Awesome! I can't wait for the next one.
