I know it’s short notice, but I only bit the bullet on the weekend about curating a Death Cafe this Saturday 20th December. I’d love it if you could join us at The Three Monkeys café for coffee/chai/milkshakes and cake/nachos/pizza in West End from 2-4pm.
I want to let you know that I’ve had a couple of enquiries about whether a death café is a good idea for people who are experiencing a very recent bereavement. My short answer would be no. Some conversations may be triggers for very raw emotions, and while we’re a supportive bunch, we are not equipped with a psychologist or a grief counsellor. What the Queensland Death Care Collective can do is refer you to qualified practitioners so you can find the right counselling service for you. When you’re not feeling so raw, perhaps you can come along to the next death café, which I’m planning for February. We would love to have you join us 🙂
