Event name: Living the Mysteries of Death & Dying

Date: Sunday 5th August

Event time: 9am - 5pm

Event details: We live in a society that is confused about death. For most of us, it is something remote, institutionalised, medicated, tidied up and removed from our everyday living. Many of us wonder how to talk about it, how to approach it, how to be with it. Imagine if our own journey of living and dying could support the building of a community that nurtures the wholeness of life in all its seasons. How we might support each other and our children to understand, know, trust and experience death as natural part of life. How might we move beyond the myth of separation, even annihilation, and all the fears fed by that view, to a lived experience of dying as sacred transition? How might we turn towards death with a sense of agency and empowerment? And when we’re called, to drop into the mystery and to trust?
In this retreat, co-facilitated by Anne-Marie Hoyne and Helene Fisher, we will explore how we can best respect and support ourselves, and others in and after our dying. And how we might find ways of doing this that reflect and honour what is, and has been most important to us. We will call upon our ancestors to seek their wisdom; we will honour our own present feelings around death and dying; and we’ll explore ways to live the realities and the mysteries with deepened awareness and authority.

When: Sunday 5th August, 9.00am – 5.00pm
