About the event
Join us in London, share a meal, a walk & visit Crossbones Cemetery.
Meeting near Waterloo Train Station, a wander along the South Bank, share a meal together, perhaps nip in the Tate Modern if the weather is particularly British & attend the evening candle-lit vigil at Crossbone Cemetery.
It feels important as Wise/Medicine Women to honour those who's found Crossbones to be their final resting place.
To acknowledge and know those who are and were considered outsiders; offer our medicine to sooth, an open heart for release and say prayers for any remaining hungry ghosts.
Cross Bones is thought to have been established originally as an unconsecrated graveyard for prostitutes, or "single women", who were known locally as "Winchester Geese" because they were licensed by the Bishop of Winchester to work within the Liberty of the Clink. The area lay outside the jurisdiction of the City of London and as a consequence became known for its brothels and theatres, as well as bull and bear baiting, activities not permitted within the City itself. By 1769 it had become a pauper's cemetery servicing St. Saviour's parish. Wikipedia
