Talking to the Stranger: Death as a Natural and Normal Part of Life
ABOUT THE TALK
The longer we live, the more we realise that death is an ever-present part of life. Yet, many of us are strangers to death – uncomfortable, if not actually afraid of its presence and approach. We avoid the subject and think of death as a mechanical failure which needs to be banished to hospitals and hospices. This strange modern denial leaves us disconnected from death’s simple beauties and unprepared for its inevitable arrival.
Through conversation, exercises and poetry, psychotherapist Juliet Grayson and poet William Ayot will be exploring the emotions we experience around death, visitations of sudden and traumatic death, and the more common experience of a slow ‘negotiated’ death. Join Juliet and William as they seek to make death a more vital part of a rich and soulful life.
