Glynis German has been living in Mallorca since 1992 and is blessed to call home the small town of Binissalem in the middle of the island. Born in Jamaica to a Welsh father and Jamaican mother, Glynis was born foreign and was the eternal middle child, complexes and all! She has overcome all those challenges, added many more of her own making and is blessed to be a mother to two awesome young men, still wondering why they chose her and marvelling at how much better it always gets! The father, her ex partner with whom she co-parents in harmony, is also the reason why they have turned out as well as they are – one a talented singer & musician and the other a peaceful & hardly ever stroppy teen still to find his purpose in life.
Glynis has enjoyed being a celebrant of weddings and naming ceremonies since 2011 and in the autumn of 2015 she completed a funeral celebrant training with the UK Fellowship of Celebrants. Glynis currently enjoys being called by Mallorca’s largest funeral directors to offer comfort to those in their hour of need and in the future Glynis hopes to be called upon by the community to offer last rites to those with no religious background, but wishing for a positive message at a sensitive time.
With death a topic she holds dear, Glynis is also a facilitator of the Mallorca Death Café, a monthly gathering with the purpose of making death a part of every day conversation. Since February 2017 Glynis has been training with Spanish association, Vinyana, in the spiritual accompaniment of the dying process and will complete her studies in 2018. More training is planned for next year and bereavement courses are of special interest with a new grief share group to be offered for those needing to talk to others in the same situation.
