From independent Celebrant Fiona Beeley –
Music and Memories is planned as a locally produced podcast, created to give our community an opportunity to remember, tell stories, to celebrate and reminisce about the people that they love who have died.
It is part of the ‘To Absent Friends’ Scotland-wide festival of storytelling and remembrance that will take place from 1st-7th of November.
As a Celebrant supporting people who are experiencing bereavement, I am conscious that the last eighteen months have been very difficult for those who have lost loved ones. There is no time limit on grief or limit to our love, those who die remain part of our memories and our lives.
Being allowed to talk about those who are no longer here physically can be very comforting. Most of us have pieces of music that trigger memories of people and events. Through the podcast ‘ Memories and Music ‘ we have decided to use music as the stimulus for people in our community to share memories .
We invite people to visit www.toabsentfriends.community to submit their choice of music and share memories of ‘absent friends’. When recording is complete the Podcast will be available via the direct link to Feck Radio Productions on the site.
The Podcast has been funded through a grant issued by The Scottish Palliative Care Partnership. It will be hosted by myself: Fiona Beeley Independent Celebrant and member of the Good Life Good Death Good Grief Alliance and produced by Feck Radio Productions – a community initiative.
