Death & Discovery – a mystical journey
SARAJANE ARIS and BRIAN PEARSE
Sunday December 6th 2015
at Pax Lodge
10.30am – 4pm (tea and coffee at 10am and 4pm, finishing at 4.30pm)
‘Death is nothing but a gateway to birth. Nothing that lives ever dies, it only changes form.’ Guru Nanak
Death – to some a mystery to be embraced, to others something to be feared and not to be thought about or discussed. Whatever happens, death is inevitable in all our human lives. We have a choice as to how we approach death and dying, as many images and traditions through the ages show us…
This workshop is an opportunity to explore the mystery and transformative journey of death and dying. It is an opportunity to review the tapestry of your own life, and to weave your personal journey of transformation through death to your next realm of experience.
We will be approaching this through transpersonal journeying and the experience of developing your own drawn dowry carpet and prayer mat. In the Nomadic tribes of the Caucasus mountains, the women produce the rugs which express their experience and aspirations. This is apparent in the Dowry rugs and carpets. Some also produce prayer mats as a gift to the mosque to be given at their death.
‘Death is as divine as Life, because it is Life – because there is nothing but life.’ Anne Baring
