This free online workshop, hosted by Jude Murray and Richard Harding, will lead us further into our gentle exploration of death and dying. Each connected -but standalone- workshop will be held around one of the Solstices or Equinoxes, mapping both the seasonal journey, and the inner spiritual journey,
The Autumnal Equinox is when the hours of daytime and nighttime are equa, a time of transition from summer into winter. It.officially marks the beginning of Autumn, and the time of the harvest. It is a traditional time of thanksgiving.
We will share ritual space ato safely facilitate discussions and meditations around the theme of death: feelings, ideas, cultural associations, fears, mythologies, concerns and questions. In the last workshop we introduced the second of the Nine Contemplations of Atisha as taught by Joan Halifax. In this workshop we will explore the third of the Nine Contemplations - That Death Will Come Whether You Are Prepared or Not. We will weave this theme through meditation, ritual, poetry and discussion.
Jude and Richard both have extensive experience of working with people and nature in and through the process of dying and beyond. Jude is an inititated Druid, lay minister, celebrant and ritual leader, embodiment facilitator, yogini and hospital chaplain. Richard is a healer, ritual space maker, paramedic practitioner, yogi, forest gardener and plant alchemist.
