Friday 15th May, 6.30pm – 8.30pm
About the workshop
What did you do with your one wild and precious life?
Using creative writing and art, we will reflect on our life by exploring the idea of our own death. First, you will be guided through a creative writing exercise to write your own obituary. Then, using a variety of art materials (whatever you can find at home), you will create an image that represents how you want your funeral/memorial to look.
The workshop aims to be a lighthearted and thought-provoking exploration of what our lives mean to us, and how we might make the most of them.
Due to social distancing, this workshop will now be online.
Worksheets will be emailed before the event. If you do not have a printer, you can still take part. You will need a pen and paper.
If you can find additional art materials, great, if not – we can still make do with what you have to hand.
About the facilitator
I am passionate about talking about life, death and meaning both as a human being, and in my role as a counsellor. I thrive on connection, and love to create space for other people to find their own ways to develop and explore a sense of “being” and connection. Increasingly, I am realising the unassuming power of nature as a space for acceptance and growth. Outside of my counselling work, I have ten years’ experience facilitating and leading training and discussion around communication, values and equality. I also co-host the Faversham Death Cafe.
