Making Friends With Your Afterlife (Friday)


This 90-minute long webinar will be led by Henrietta Lang, a therapist with broad experience on the topics of death and dying. It will begin with a short guided journey followed by shared reflections and thoughts. (The session will also run on Sun 1 Nov.)

The webinar participants will be given license to imagine life after death in a safe and creative way, hopefully connecting them to a deeper sense of what this means to them. As no-one can ‘know’ what this will be like, why not imagine and create a relationship with the afterlife, as our ancestors did?

In both sessions (this one and the Sunday session), Henri will be joined by Maya Love. Maya is the band leader of Dragonsfly, choir director and workshop leader of ‘Sing your heart out – songs that tend to grief and joy’ from the Festival of Death and Dying.

Societal taboos mean that people don’t often talk about death. This lack of a shared and natural narrative around potential afterlives can contribute to feelings of fear and anxiety. Drawing on Jungian concepts of imagination as a tool for accessing inner guidance, audience members will be invited to find their own vision of the afterlife which might serve as a friendly anchor as they anticipate the end of life, whether for themselves or for others.

Good Grief online events are all free to attend.
