Acompalia’s Informative Talk in June


Come and join Acompalia’s informative talk on June 14th from 10:30 in Palacio Ruiz de Castro – Centro de arte Hernández Quero, Calle Ruiz, 6, 18600 Motril, Granada

An opportunity to chat over complimentary coffee and cake about one of the biggest taboo subjects in today’s society.

Talking about death isn’t going to make it happen any sooner but it may just help those who are left behind when they lose you.

On Thursday 14th June, representatives from Grupo ASV, the leading funeral providers in this area will be joining us to talk about preparing for death while AF Consulting will be by your side to answer all your legal queries. This talk will be the chance to learn about the options and possibilities available for funerals in Spain that you may want to consider.

This informative discussion led by experts in the field will be the ice-breaker to a series of death cafés Acompalia would like to start in the fall, led by Funeral celebrant, Death cafés expert and Acompalia volunteer Judith HInman. On Thursday, following the talk, as a group you will be given the opportunity to exchange thoughts, ideas, wishes, and experiences with Judith.

It will be an opportunity to dispel some myths about the differences here in Spain to a funeral in your home country.

Places are limited and we are expecting it to be a popular event so please contact us and register your interest to attend on info@acompalia.org. Please let us know also if there are any specific subjects you would like to see addressed.

Meet Judith Hinman:

I am looking forward to working as a new volunteer with Accompalia. I now live in the Alpujarra Alta, after spending a working life in adult education in London. I am a trained funeral celebrant and over the coming year, I will be helping Accompalia to run a series of Death Cafes. It’s a strange, arresting name but if you look it up on the internet (deathcafe.com) you will see it’s now a worldwide movement of people who meet to enjoy coffee and cake while talking about anything they want to bring up  around the subject of death or loss or bereavement….it’s trying to help make the silence around these topics a little less profound, and for the people thinking about these things to feel a little less isolated. Come and try one out, you may find it unexpectedly helpful and interesting. I will also be running workshops on end of life planning, for those who want to get organised …and then forget about it! So I look forward to meeting you at one of these events over the coming year.
