In May 2015, Hasina's eldest brother died, she led his funeral and hosted a Death Café. The theme that evolved was the journey of the soul.

Hosting Death Cafes allowed Hasina to experience and embrace difficult conversations on death & dying. Death Cafe attracts people from all walks of life who share their experience of personal bereavement, planning our departure, feelings about their own death and different types of death, i.e. suicide, accidental, baby/child to sudden deaths. Death Café is an open and safe space that allows people to explore deep unresolved experiences and can be a hugely healing. Each Death Cafe would have a natural ...

Death Cafe write up: Death Cafe in Forest Gate, East London

On Monday the 10th November, Death Cafe arrived at Forest Gate East London. 

 I have attended a few Death Cafe's over the last couple of years and I've been humbled by their ability to create a beautiful space, where real honesty and courage are present.

But the thing i love, is you really don't know where the conversation will lead, everyone brings something unique to the party. Not quite bring a bottle, but you know what I mean.

One by one the small group of intrepid existential explorers shared  their thoughts and experiences.

We talked about looking after dying parents before and after their death ...
