DEATH AND MOURNING: through the lens of an Agnostic-Buddhist

Centre for Existential Practice (CEP)

DEATH AND MOURNING: through the lens of an Agnostic- Buddhist

Online via zoom

Presenter: Evone Phoo

Mourning a death is one of the most difficult things we go through and tends to be heavily influenced by our culture and religion. As an agnostic, Evone used not to think much about funeral rituals. But when she lost someone close to her, she started seeing the rituals through a different lens and found herself embracing those rituals which her agnostic self might consider illogical. Drawing on her experience as a therapist and from existential psychology, Evone gained a new appreciation for Buddhist rituals and the ways in which they can shape our grieving process.

She will talk with Alison for 45 minutes, there will be discussion in small breakout rooms then a Q & A for the last 30 minutes.

Can be booked as part of package of 4 conversations each Thursday in March or stand alone
