Death & Dying: Sacred Conversations Held In Ritual
with Ash Canty
What is your relationship to death? Death has always accompanied life, as a twin, as a beloved, as final rest, as decomposition. It has also been a tool and result of violence, of war, of nonconsensual rupture, of erasure. As many of us continue along our ancestral pathways and forward into the continuing ecocide and genocide of this time on earth, the veils continue to thin. Many of us are encountering and continuing to encounter death in both new and old ways, daily, but often without community and cultural spaces within which to contextualize, hold, explore, or ritualize these thresholds. In this 3 hour workshop we will explore our feelings, fears, curiosities, mysteries and griefs around death and dying. Death Walker & Spirit Usher Medium Ash Canty (they/he), will guide us in threshold and ritual to be able to step into a non-linear time and space to have these conversations. We are all walking towards our death, but how do we integrate this relationship? How do we connect with death? We know that while we are alive, we will die and so will everyone we love. How do we rest in that paradox?
