Insight

“We could be more authentic, be more true to ourselves, take more risks, spend more time with family, make ourselves happier, be more compassionate.”

How exploring death can help us to live more meaningful lives. Amanda Blainey is an author, speaker and social media activist in the growing death movement and founder of Doing Death an organisation that opens up authentic conversations about death and dying. In addition to working with a local hospice she is involved in a charity which records the life stories of terminally ill patients in the UK. Currently Amanda is training to be a death doula and runs a death café which is a regular popup event for people to discuss their mortality. Her hope is that by opening up authentic conversations about and embracing death and dying, she can inspire people to live life more fully.
