Making Friends with Death
Module 2 (West) October 2021
With Leo Rutherford & Howard Malpas.
Mother Earth / Inner Wellness / Aging – Becoming an old person or an Elder.
This module is focussed on the Earth and our connection to everything physical – in other words, every THING! This includes our own body which is our spirit’s ‘Vehicle of-Experience’ for this life on earth.
The shamans say that all sickness starts in the spirit and only later is expressed in the physical. Using tools including shamanic journeying we will seek access to whatever healing is needed to bring us health and fitness both individually and collectively. We will seek connection with ancestors and deceased loved ones to bring closure where necessary.
The West is about facing death – and therefore – Life. We will look at death of the body-vehicle and what that means, death both as the final act of life and the challenge of aliveness versus deadness while alive.
Overcoming fear of death is a key to daring to live fully with heart. It is by committing to ourself that we can live fully, live to our best, put our whole self into whatever we have chosen to pursue…. that the most stunning results come to be achieved. And it is from that experience of daring to to go full on that the greatest insight and development happens.
Our life journey brings us to old age. There are two possible paths to old age – to become an old person or to become an Elder. Old people have many needs, elders have plenty to give. In the old cultures it was assumed everyone would become and elder. Today it is assumed we all become old people – for whom there are an abundance of homes and conveniences. Becoming an elder takes personal inner development but if you are willing to put in the work, the result is a very different kind of aging
Our outdoor ceremonies will be based on Glastonbury Tor. Bring walking shoes!
