Death and Dying

This class will be a meditation on death and grieving rituals. We will have visiting artists and scholars come visit the class whose practices engage with death. There will also be visits with people working in various aspects of the death industry (death doulas, hospice workers). We will discuss various grieving practices and traditions of connecting with the dead and dying. For so many, death is a terrifying and taboo subject. We hope to create a space where we can demystify this universal fact of life and share our own experiences/fears/hopes surrounding death and grief. No experience is necessary, just an openness and willingness to engage. There will be a few short readings. Attendance is essential.
