Hi everybody. I have a topic that I would like to hear your views. Do you think that there is a need for a place for those who go through grief, where they can mediate, take care of their broken souls. A place where they can pay tributes, organise memorial service, meet others that go through the same process (although they lost people who were in different relations to them). A place at the sea, with views and the melody played by the wind. Maybe we can leave there something that used to belonged to a person that we lost? so we can go back there every year to think about them, to let them know we did love them, we do love them and we always will. what is your vision of a place like this?

Outside x sometimes the grief is too big for a building.

I think there is a need for this, however, defining one place would be very challenging as each loss is so individual and therefore what works for me may not work for others.

Yes but I think people need to find their own space. I wouldn't feel comfortable going to somewhere that had been 'arranged' for me. I have found spaces that make me feel close to my son and they're very precious but I'm not sure somewhere that was designated as the right place to grieve would feel appropriate for me personally.

Yes i think this is needed op. I don't like the fact that i paid a fair bit of money for my mum to have a plaque and a there is the crematoriums little garden with this which we have adopted a rose bush, but it would be nice to have a small little vase of some sort to put some flowers there and stay there until we go back next time.

Are you thinking of setting up a business to provide this, OP?
