A Death Cafe at the Grief Centre - 10am, Saturday 29 Oct

All over the world Death Cafes are becoming more and more popular as places to openly and tenderly talk about death and dying - and it's never too soon to do this!   The Grief Centre will host our first Death Cafe on Saturday 29 October at 10am.  Our experienced facilitator is Amanda McLennan, a trainee End of Life Planner / Death Doula with personal and professional experience with dying, death and grief.  At a Death Cafe, anyone can participate!  As open and safe spaces you are free to share your experiences, feelings, thoughts, and ideas on any topic related to death and dying. There is no set agenda. Cafes are not grief support groups, although you are free to share about the loss of loved ones.   To let Amanda know you're coming please send her an email at : perthdeathcafe22@gmail.com Attendance is free although a donation to the Grief Centre is always welcomed.

COMMUNITY GRIEF GATHERINGS - Sunday 15 May and June 12

Community Grief Gatherings are based on the recognition that over the ages and across cultures, traditions around the world have always seen and experienced grief as a communal event. In western society, the pain of loss lingers for many people largely due to there being no space for it to be honoured beyond the context of a funeral and wake. The Grief Centre now offers access to simple, non-sectarian Grief Gatherings, that are held in a safe and welcoming place, as a powerful way to lift the heartache of grief while building community connection. The City of Stirling recently approved a Community Collaborations Grant to fund two Grief Gatherings in Stirling Hubs in 2022. For more information about the Gatherings or to stay in touch about further dates for our 2022 Program please send your inquiry below.
