About this Death Cafe

Join us in a relaxed setting to drink tea /coffee & to eat cake whilst discussing anything you want to in relation to death and dying, life and living.

Our Library Death Cafe is a safe, confidential and supportive space to talk or just listen -Friendly, informative and intimate. Please note that this is not a grief support or counselling session so is not suitable for anyone sufffering bereavment or who maybe feeling vulnerable about the subject of death.

The session will be facilitated by Hasina Zaman from Compassionate Funerals.

This session is part of The Redbridge Final Party Project - A project aimed at sparking conversations and discussion about death, dying, life and living through a series of events and workshops which help us celebrate life whilst removing fear and barriers around the subject of death.

The project is funded through the Engaging Libraries programme administered by Welcome Trust & Carnegie Trust.

About Compassionate Funerals in partnership with Redbridge Libraries

Hosting Death Cafes allowed Hasina to experience and embrace difficult conversations on death & dying. Death Cafes attract people from all walks of life who can share their experience of personal bereavement, planning our departure, feelings about their own death and different types of death. Death Cafés are open and safe spaces that allow people to explore deep unresolved experiences and can be a hugely healing. 
Hasina believes the way we live is the way we die.  When we decide to live well, we decide to die well. Allowing us to leave the world a better place. She accepts those we leave behind will be saddened by our loss. Our 'hearts' job is to love one another. With death the heart feels sadness. It's our responsibility to care for people who are bereaved and to return them back to their life's purpose. Death Café is a powerful platform that truly embraces our transition.
