I believe community events allow us to learn & heal together.

There are some who say that successful living and aging includes active engagement in life with the active engagement, besides exercise and positivity, being engaged with others. Loving and friendly relationships are critical as we age and especially when we are confronting life-limiting illness and/or grief & bereavement. Communal healing can have a beautiful and lasting impact. Together we can make a difference in our own life and in the lives of others.

"It Happens: Let's Talk About Death"

Our cafe conversation session took place virtually with hosts Sue Phillips and Anne Reid. These cafes are loosely based on the Death Cafe model developed by Jon Underwood, who is considered by many to be a hero in the movement to reclaim community deathcare. 

As End of LIfe Doulas,we are very committed to providing safe spaces for people to explore their thoughts and feelings on death and grief and remain grateful for the guidance provided by the work of Underwood and others.

The Goodbye Story Cafe - Love Session

Or storytellers brought beautiful tales of love and loss and included a story of pet loss. We are all stories and we are all storytellers. These themed sessions are meant to offer an open, accessible, safe space for sharing our experiences. 

 

The Goodbye Story Cafe runs every 3-4 months. If you are interested in joining us as a listener or storyteller please contact Sue at: sphillips5519@gmail.com 

Gratitude

Is it possible we are entering into a safer space for sharing our experiences in person? I am optimistic and so look forward to hugs and shared in-person space. Gratitude - Day 52/365
