Part IV: Facing Mortality
Watching a loved one die is more than emotional: it’s also educational. Death Over Dinner attendees share how their experiences with death changed their attitudes about their mortality, and they envision what might happen after their own passings.
Part I: Remembering
If we can get used to talking about death, will it be easier to face when the time comes? When a group of strangers come together at a home in London, they start their discussion of mortality by sharing their experiences of loss.
Part II: Mourning
It’s impossible to predict how long it will take to get over a loved one’s death. Attendees at a Death Over Dinner event talk about what it was like to be present during someone’s death, and how they felt in the immediate aftermath.
Part III: The Afterlife?
When we imagine what happens after death, we’re not conjuring our ideas out of nowhere. The group members discuss whether they think there’s an afterlife and what it might look like, and then ask themselves where they think those visions come from.
