Join us on this six-week program focusing on facing death. We will look at stories that explore ways in which we may begin to face death, particularly our own, with intention and openness. The final week will provide an opportunity for participants to share their own creations with the group.
The series meets Tuesdays 31 May - 5 July at Noon Eastern US / 6 pm European time for two hours.
Class size is limited to 15 to ensure the best experience. The total fee for all six sessions is $150 USD. A limited number of scholarships are available; contact us if you wish to apply. Supporters who pay $200 USD help fund the scholarships; in gratitude, Rebecca and Jim will schedule a special hour for supporters following the conclusion of the program.
Part of the “Journey into Dying and Living” series, where we explore Dying and Living through storytelling, creative exercises, and meditations.
Rebecca Lemaire is a versatile Belgian-British storyteller and is currently based in the South of Spain. She has performed and given workshops at international festivals, in a prison, yoga schools, Tibetan monasteries, theatres, and libraries. She tells stories about grief and death to open the conversation and help with healing. She is a Reiki healer and is an active participant in the group ‘Vivir y Morir’ in Spain, in which the taboo about death is overcome through discussions, practical and spiritual preparation, movies, poetry, and stories. In Spain, she gives introductory courses in storytelling skills for teenagers and adults in person and online. She often uses sound (Indian flute, kalimba, voice and frame drum) to give depth to the stories she tells.
Maggid Jim Brulé is a transformational storyteller, death doula, Reiki healer, and the founder of Transformational Storytelling, of which this series is a part. He also works with organizations and communities to bring the power of storytelling to healing the fractures which so often divide us around race, class, faith tradition, and culture. Jim believes that the right story told in the right way with an open heart can heal wounds and change lives.
