The Tree Of Living & Dying: Gatherings For Sacred Story
These are ceremonial evenings exploring the powerful relationships between life, death and beyond. Authors read from published works and works in progress, which are then woven into a shared experience of embodied story. Participants have a chance to speak stories, too, and to feed the mystery by placing on an altar the names of ancestors and photos or mementos to honor loved ones who have died.
All who are contemplating what it means to be born, live a life, and die into the mystery of whatever lies beyond will find a space where inquiry, story, and witnessing lead toward a deepened acceptance of death as part of life. Loss, grief, wonder, questioning, or all-out confusion are welcome entry points for joining the gathering.
Tree of Living & Dying Gatherings are held twice a year in Ashland, Oregon.
The next one is:
May 20: 6:30-9:00pm
Held at Gathering (formerly The Haven): 1970 Ashland Street, Ashland, Oregon
Registration Fee: $10 in advance / $15 at the door
