- The Martinsey Isle Trust – A sacred heritage and education trust -

Sacred Land
We are in danger of losing sacred land - places of great spiritual significance to our forebears. Martinsey, in Somerset, is such a place, and gives its name to our Trust.

Sacred Living and Dying
We have largely lost the sacred art of dying (and living) in the modern Western world: how to die; how to sit with the dying; how to listen and how to talk about death; how to grieve; and how to live authentically.

Our Art of Dying (and Living) project, which includes Resource and Drop-In Centres; using the art; and offering, talks, workshops, informal gatherings, awareness days and research, stimulates dialogue around dying and offers support and unbiased information. There will be a time for all of us when having some understanding of this sacred art will help us cope with, possibly, the most difficult time in our lives.’ As a Trust, we honour all faiths and the right to none.

By gathering together significant pieces of land; by supporting and planning to run green burial grounds; and by engaging in sacred research, these elements, are brought together: our heritage as human and spiritual beings. At Martinsey we hope to form a Centre encompassing all aspects of dying and bereavement, and create a Centre for learning and research.

- Care of Land - Care of People - Care of Spirit

Transitus works towards changing attitudes about the spiritual aspects of death, dying and a continuity of consciousness
