Deborah Kelley & Clare Whistler: Asclepian Dreaming for a Dying Earth

WORKSHOP + special session

Drawing on principles of Asclepian healing temples, we would like to offer two experiential workshops, incorporating bodywork, embodied imagination, ritual and nature: one in the evening, followed by an invitation to attend to dreams overnight, and one the following morning, to respond to this dreaming. Having run Asclepian inspired groupwork for people facing death over last 20 years, we will invite participants to imagine themselves as the dying earth, visiting the ‘Asclepian temples’ and preparing for a healing dream.

This slot is the main workshop slot. Please note that there is a follow-up slot the next morning (Tues Nov 2) at 09.15 to 10.15 GMT
