Death Priestess of Avalon
with Bee Helygen, Priestess of Avalon, Priestess of Cerridwen
Beginning 22nd October 2021
In this course you will be exploring some of the history of ancient ways of laying the dead to rest, learning about alternative cultural views and finding from there an understanding of the ways our society and culture views death, cares for the dying and handles the deceased. It is our intention to make the way we are dealing with death in Western Society a more dignified, people centred blessing way. As we celebrate the birth of a child in our society, so we must now, in this new age of compassion and care, find a better way to allow all people to die with dignity and in peace.
You will be looking at the way our dying are cared for by assorted agencies and what we as Death Priestesses could offer to increase their comforts in their last months, weeks and days.
You will learn to offer advocacy and assistance in making their last wishes known to family, friends and their wider community including health care facilities and health care professionals.
You will learn how to guide them in making their wishes known in writing and legally.
You will learn to provide soul healing if asked for, sacred listening to patient and family, how to use energy healing combined with crystals, herbs, sound and essential oils were appropriate and requested.
You will be taught a variety of ceremonies for the dying person and funeral care after death.
You will be shown how to prepare a body for funeral.
For those willing to become guides to the soul after death we will show you the office of the psycho pomp. This work may not suit every applicant and is not a requirement for passing the course.
