The universal impact of grief

9 September 2014

Dying Matters champions Tony and Dorothy Bonser, together with film-maker and healthcare chaplain Kathleen LaCamera, travelled to New Hampshire this summer to lead workshops on dying, death and bereavement at Camp Winni, a retreat on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee which celebrates family and friendship. Tony and Dorothy share their experiences of a week that turned a fundamental cultural assumption - that Americans can discuss everything openly, including grief - on its head.
