Tending the Dead: An Everyday Psychopomp Guide to Inspire the Living and Empower the Future
According to Christina Lee Pratt, tending the dead is a responsibility of the living. It brings us into an intimate relationship with death in ways that inspire us to focus on what matters first, and pay attention to our impact on the future. We can communicate with loved ones on the other side, but should we? How do we communicate with the dead, assist in reconciling what keeps them here, and support the creation of true ancestors who empower next generations to innovate by learning from past mistakes to create a better future?
In this session, you'll discover:
- That tending the dead gives us a lived understanding of death as a sacred, natural process
- You can talk to the dead, but should you?
- Tending the dead clears the way for a sustainable planet, and a just future
