The global movement Death Over Dinner encourages friends, colleagues, and even total strangers to get together, share a meal, and build healthier relationships with their own mortality by discussing ideas and feelings about death.
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.
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.
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.
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.
