About Jane Iskander:
I like to think I'm ideally suited for Death Cafe, I've had a wealth of life experience, my various working roles taking me from Fancy dress hire to Palliative care, via occupational therapy, group work, social care and shop work! Alongside this i have had all the usual. "life events" both positive and negatiive.. Exploring the world we live in, learning about people and life, my own illness, bereavements and day to. day stresses.
What brings you to Death Cafe?
I feel we have lost our connection with this very normal and natural part of our lives, leaving it shrouded in fear, mystery and rumours!
I think talking and sharing tea and cake will enable us to "normalise" and improve our relationship with death and dying
What would you like your legacy to be?
"oh yes i remember Jane, she was a good kind person, and she was funny!!"
Thoughts for sharing:
People who have had a chance to talk about death and dying are better able to cope with bereavement, death, dying and illness too.

I facilitated my first Death Café two days ago, Several people couldn’t easily find the event, in future I will provide a map and really good directions to the venue!
Once we were (eventually 15minutes after the advertised start time) all sitting with drinks and cakes I gave my prepared introduction to Death Café with a little history of the momvement and an outline of what it is, isn’t some ‘ground rules’ and my ‘plan’ for the session.
I began by introducing myself and saying a bit about why I want to hold Death Cafes, then invited the group to introduce themselves and say what brought ...
