As the saying goes ‘nothing in this world is certain apart from taxes and death’ and yet we spend much of our lives pretending that we will never die.
In October and November we will be holding a series of 5 workshops to inform people of all ages about the things that can be put in place in the event of our death. Being prepared can reduce fear and anxiety; help us feel a little more in control; and it easier and less stressful for those we leave behind.

AN INTRODUCTION TO MANDALAS. Mandala’ is the Sanskrit word for ‘circle’. Within many traditions, the mandala is a sacred symbol of the spiritual journey. Mandalas can be found all around us in nature and in architecture and art. The creation of mandalas can be used to help bring wholeness and healing to a person’s life. It can also be used as a spiritual tool.
At this workshop, run by Rev Cathie Lambert, you will create a mandala of your own. You may not walk away with a piece to put in a gallery, but hopefully you will have enjoyed some time going deeper within yourself.
