The third in our series of Armchair Chats features music and talks.
About this Event
The third North Berwick Compassionate Community online chat centres on Soul Midwives and Death Doulas – practitioners who work in the community engaging with people at the end of their lives, offering care, guidance and spiritual support during a person’s last days.
Jude Meryl, a local Soul Midwife will discuss how Soul Midwives work with the dying, and how some of the techniques of Soul Midwifery can help us all to support those at their end of life. Jude is a Soul Midwife, Soul Midwives’ Mentor and Tutor, and a TLC (Tender Loving Care) Trainer.
Lucy Aykroyd, a local author, will read from her book Leaves of Love. This book is described as offering a small ‘pebble in your pocket’ guide for those accompanying someone as they age and come to the end of their life. Real life stories adapted from Lucy’s work as an end-of-life Doula, act as beautiful reminders of simple ways to be, heartfelt ways to listen and creative ideas to support the people we walk alongside.
The event will also feature live music from Abi, a singer and educator, with a wide range of music from the nostalgic 40s, through the soulful 70s, and all the way up to modern pop and jazz/blues songs.
The meeting will take place via Zoom. You can download zoom and set up an account here. The meeting details will be sent to you by email ahead of the event.
