Remembering The Light

A simple and creative candlelight ceremony, led by Fife poet Jayne Wilding, is going to take place on Falkland Estate on the evening of Monday 16 November from 6-8pm.

The event will involve a number of people who have been affected by loss of a loved one, including those who have struggled with mental or emotional health or traumatic loss.

The Centre for Stewardship is hosting the event as part of its plans to use the outstanding designed landscape, in its care, for therapeutic and ceremonial purposes.

The event will involve some walking, listening and sharing about light and darkness, inside and outside. Subject to reasonable weather, those who take part will follow a short route accompanied by candles and water. There will also be a wet weather alternative.

It is intended that this small event might augur the future development of ceremonies in a small handful of landscapes in Fife for both therapeutic benefit and/or rites of passage.

The small ceremony will involve members of Fife Employment Access Trust, friends of the Centre for Stewardship as well as people who experience mental health problems and supportive professionals.

Numbers are limited, so visitors are asked to contact the centre on venue@centreforstewardship.org.uk if interested.
