Your guide to weird and wonderful courses this June

This terms lineup at WEA Adult Learning has something for everyone with a catalogue of peculiar and less traditional courses for you to sink your teeth into all month long.

Naturally we all have a curiosity to learn, and although our brains might not be the sponges they once were in infancy, there’s no reason not to want to pick up a new skill.

You might be thinking by new skill we mean learning how to cook a brilliant spaghetti and meatballs that’s just as good as your grandma’s original recipes, however, we have something a little more weird and wonderful in mind.

This terms lineup at WEA Adult Learning has something for everyone with a plethora of peculiar and less traditional courses for you to sink your teeth into all month long.

Dying to know the truth: Death & Dying

Throughout human history, a fascination with death has been ever-present, characterised by obsession with or often fear of the end and myriad questions of what, if any, afterlife may exist for us. Together, you will explore the journey the human body will take during and after the end of life period. The class will also review both clinical and biological death, including near-death experience (NDE) and out-of-body experience (OBE), situations in which one leaves their body and life behind temporarily. The information presented in this seminar will be presented from a non-sectarian, medically scientific, humanistic perspective. ‘Morbid curiosity welcome’.
