Mortality Matters: Making Friends with Death to Live Well

A workshop facilitated by Debbie Young & Alberta Gutteridge, and hosted by Bless Stories

We are very excited to be partnering with stylist and writer Ashlyn Gibson, from Bless Stories, to host this workshop.

There is one certainty in life and that is that we will all die. But talking about dying and death is one of the greatest taboos. This workshop breaks down this taboo and provides a confidential and safe space to explore fears and concerns for ourselves and our loved ones and provides practical information about steps that we can all take to make friends with death to allow us to live fuller, richer lives.

Date: Thursday 24th February 2022, at 6.30pm – 8.30pm

Venue: Bless, Stoke Newington Church Street, London, N16 0UD

Menopause Cafe

We are delighted to be part of a Menopause Festival at East of Eden in Walthamstow to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Like Death Cafes, Menopause Cafes provide a confidential space where people, usually strangers, come together to talk about menopause. There is no agenda, objectives or expert advice: the conversation is simply led by the people in the group and is an opportunity to talk and share about a subject that is often hidden. 

We want more open conversations about menopause and invite people of any gender and any age to join us.
