Notes from the Underground

March 23, 2019 (2–5pm)
The October Gallery, 24 Old Gloucester Street, London WC1N 3AL

A talk and seminar exploring death as one of the most essential aspects of our humanity from a psychological and spiritual perspective.

Event Description

“Striving for life, I seek death, seeking death, I find life”
William Shakespeare
(Measure for Measure, Act 3 Scene 1)

With Janet Bowers: an ongoing inquiry into the meaning of life and death has led me to wisdoms found through myths and archetypes, psychological aspects, existentialism and spiritual metaphysics and, above all, an experiential journey into being, and a radical new perspective.

Janet Bowers is a Core Process Psychotherapist and supervisor in private practice. Over many years she has been a student of the Beshara School with a particular emphasis on the study of Ibn ’Arabi. She is based in London.
