Saturday 16th May 2020, 10.45am- 1pm, Memorial Woodlands, GoodGriefBristol and Dying Matters week
We are aware that many people are being faced with difficult situations around the end of life care during this Covid-19 pandemic. Many people will be having thoughts and feelings around death, dying and bereavement and will not have the opportunity to open up about these or share them with others, not only because of confinement but also because of the lack of openness in our society around these issues.
Memorial Woodlands want to support people living in the local community to have these conversations in a safe and comfortable space. With this in mind, we have planned a
Virtual Death Café on Saturday 16th May at 10:45 am.
Death Cafes are informal gatherings designed to increase awareness of death and help people make the most of their finite lives. They are for people to get together to discuss the end of life, death, bereavement in a friendly, non-judgemental way. This is a group directed discussion where there is no agenda, objectives or themes.
Mireille Hayden of Gentle Dusk, who has been running death café’s for 5 years as well as delivering training and workshops, will be facilitating the discussions.
We have limited numbers that can join in the event so people need to pre-book, but we intend to have discussions as we do in any other Death Café. If you or someone you know would like to book onto this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 01454 414 999.
