Rites of Passage Autumn School

Rites of Passage Autumn School is an intensive four-day course led by Sue Gill and Gilly Adams of Dead Good Guides. Course information:

We will examine the Hows and Whys of ceremony and celebration in a practical and experiential way, investigating how both positive and negative life events can be distilled into myth and poetry, and creating meaningful rituals to contain them. In particular, we explore how ceremony and celebration has and does play out in our own lives in order to feel empowered to facilitate these processes in the lives of others in an imaginative and creative way.

This is not a nuts and bolts course; instead the week will be shaped to fulfill the needs and aspirations of participants so there will be plenty of opportunities to learn and practice many aspects of the craft of creating ceremony – both public and private – in a safe environment.

Gilly Adams and Sue Gill will offer insights into the cognitively rich world of the secular celebrant, sharing their experience, offering theory, information, and – they hope – inspiration.

There are twelve places on the workshop – and at time of writing just four left @ £375. Fees cover tuition, materials, and home cooked meals. Accommodation is not included, but Dead Good Guides can help you find it.

The Autumn School will take place 22-25 October at a location near Frome, Somerset. For more information see www.deadgoodguides.com or contact Sue Gill on foxandgill@btinternet.com or Gilly Adams on gillyadams@tiscali.co.uk
