Good Life Good Death Good Grief is a membership organisation in Scotland representing around 700 individuals and organisations interested in living and dying well.
Good Life has been busy with lots of events and activities to waft some air into death and dying like Death on the Fringe at Edinburgh Festival and To Absent Friends: a festival of remembrance created out of a desire to address some of the social isolation people who have been bereaved experience. Coordinated by Good Life Death Grief it was conceived as a way of remembering our loved and lost. See the film about the idea behind To Absent Friends.
To Absent Friends, a People’s Festival of Storytelling and Remembrance gave an opportunity to revive lost traditions and create new ones, inviting people across Scotland to remember, tell stories, celebrate and reminisce about our loved and lost.
Like Final Fling, Good Life Death Grief want to encourage us take control of death in our lives. All of us involved in the The Death Movement want it to be normal to talk about life, death, loss, grief. Events like Absent Friends gives a loud clear signal that it’s socially acceptable to share memories and stories of people who have died.
