Event Description

 

 

 

 

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

“An ongoing inquiry into the meaning of life and death has lead me to wisdoms found in myths and archetypes, the psychological, existential and spiritual metaphysics and above all an experiential journey into ‘Being’ and a radical new perspective.” Janet Bowers

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.
