After being born, death is perhaps the only thing we can be completely certain will happen to us all. To live and to love, also means to lose. Yet, for many of us death and loss are topics that can be hard to talk about and a universally shared experience can lead to isolation instead of connection.

Inspired by a format called “Death Cafe”, we will create a space to share, to feel and to embody what changes when we experience death and loss. Guided touch is part of the workshop, but is of course optional.
