Ever wondered how learning about other cultural perceptions of death might benefit the ways we greive in the UK? This is a great opportunity to explore the rites, rituals and cultural practices around death, dying and loss, which have engaged millions of people around the world who want to understand, accept and respond to death and loss.

Dr Wester, a death education specialist, has put together another fascinating programme for those wanting to help themselves and others to understand this inevitable part of life.

  • Chinese Ghost Marriage
  • Mexican Sugar Skulls
  • Kashubian Empty Chair
  • Latvian Woman in White
  • Native American – Dig a Hole

…to name but a few.

What do they mean and in what way might they be considered helpful to the bereaved?

Come and participate in another wonderful session with Dr Judith Wester.

Fee of £35.00 per person is payable in advance. Fees go to support our Life Lessons Programme for young people.
