Death Cafe profile for Rosie Hadden

About Rosie Hadden:

I am an artist and crafts maker who loves to write poetry and create as a way of understanding the world around me. I meditate daily and often sit with others in circles.  Sharing experiences in community often holds such healing whether it is talking over a cup of tea, making a basket or meditating. 

What brings you to Death Cafe?

Growing up in Northern Ireland death was a much more domestic affair with bodies being kept in the home with open coffins and 3 days of flowing visitors coming and going paying their respects talking drinking endless cups of tea and sharing endless plates of sandwiches and cakes.  The concept of a Death Cafe for me just feels like an easy extension of this early experience.  It's time to talk. 

What would you like your legacy to be?

To have been a kind compassionate person. 

Thoughts for sharing:

After I sat with my father as he died I made a decision to do one thing every day that gave me pleasure.  This was the gift of his death. I also inherited his basket making tools and began to make baskets as a way of carrying on my conversations with him.
