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.
