DEATH CAFE -We zoomed in on Saturday, 17th April!

Celia Spiers and I offered another Death Cafe on Zoom  providing a safe, comforting, enlivening and gently held space to bring your griefs from this year of covid.

The losses of this past year – covid related deaths, the loss of our way of life, being unable to be with our beloveds, climate change, the loss of our natural environment due to HS2, and many more, on top of any “normal” bereavements – have left so many of us with a deep need to talk and be heard, to meet and be met.

I have worked as a therapist for over thirty years, and trained in bereavement awareness early in my career after finding my way through early losses. Celia Spiers writes : my life struggles with difficult, challenging times have meant facing death and its place in my living. Even people close to me found it almost impossible to talk to me about this and I was delighted to discover my first Death Cafe. A safe, gentle, comfortable space. It is a pleasure to share this with others – a place to listen, learn and eat cake!
