History & Myths about Death–Why they matter today


Talking about death and dying is easier than you think; especially if you examine it through the lens of other cultures, other times, other stories…

This class will look at:

  • How societies around the world approach death differently
  • Can historical and mythical stories about death help us understand death better today?
  • How pre-Roman mythology has formed Western attitudes toward death
  • How does our understanding of time change the way we approach death?

This two-hour class can be booked across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and will run in a variety of venues around Shropshire

Locations of classes are subject to change depending on the location of participants. We do our best to book a venue nearest the group attending the classes. So let us know where you would like to have a class.

Dr Judith Wester, our resident expert on death education, will teach this highly interesting class on death, myth and time. It is one of her favourites!
