We are so excited to announce Death Fest, a community gathering to explore the natural cycles of life and death. Come and immerse yourself in a full day of educational workshops, creative and self-reflective experiences, and community care and connection.
Together we will explore a range of choices available through the dying process and after death. We will hold space for the physical, mental, and emotional processes that accompany death, both for the dying and their loved ones.
Come learn about the dying process, after-death body care, and green burial. Connect with ancient, inner, and collective wisdom around dying and the grief processes that inevitably accompany it. Experience the art and songs, knowledge and skills of members of our community who regularly tend the hearth of death and dying.
We will open and close in a circle of communion. In between there will be a rich array of opportunities to learn, restore, and grow. We will expand our knowledge and awareness, reflect on our experiences, hold grief close, sing, dance, write, create, and cook. We will share a meal, honor our ancestors, listen, open, celebrate, and breathe, all in the embrace of the stunning Camp Albemarle landscape.
We are so looking forward to connecting with you through this experience!
This event is a shared endeavor among Woven Roots Collective, Hospice of the Piedmont, and Panorama Natural Burial.
