Wyong, Central Coast NSW
The Celebrant Society will be facilitating an incredible, intense, and personally fulfilling two-day workshop with seasoned celebrant and pioneer in the world of death and dying, Zenith Virago.
*Limited tickets available*
This 2 day workshop is specifically designed for existing or aspiring Celebrants.
It is not a shortened version of the Deathwalker Training, nor the whole Ceremony Master Class.
It is for people who are already, about to be, or want to be Authorised Marriage Celebrants and who want to venture in to death or funeral ceremonies, and want to deepen their knowledge and abilities.
It is also for people who are already, or may want to just be death or funeral celebrants.
These are the four Modules we will cover:
1. Exploring dying, death and loss, for ourselves and those we work with.
2. Consulting with dying people and bereaved families.
3. Ceremony structure, content & co ordination.
4. Working with families for sudden, challenging or more complex deaths.
When a sudden, unexpected or shocking death occurs, especially to the young, the Ceremony needs to be well crafted, guiding and healing. As a Celebrant these ceremonies can be more challenging but also more satisfying.
Covering how to be comfortable with dying or bereaved people, in order to glean the details needed for the ceremony.
Zenith Virago is the EO and founding member of the NSW Charity, The Natural Death Care Centre. She is the co-author of the book The Intimacy of Death & Dying and subject of the international independent documentary Zen & the Art of Dying.
Zenith is known as a Deathwalker, and educator and a celebrant, offering guidance, support and care to inform, enable and empower people to be as informed, open and courageous as they can, and to experience their dying and their loss in the best way they can.
Zenith now works, speaks and teaches both nationally and internationally, and her work may be best summed up as assisting people to die well, and for those left behind to have a healthier bereavement as they move into their healing with few to no regrets.
