The Tree Of Living & Dying: A Ceremony of Remembrance

The Tree of Living & Dying Ceremony of Remembrance is held annually in Ashland, Oregon at the midpoint between Halloween (All Hallows Eve) and Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) when the veil between worlds is said to thin. It is a good time for connection, healing, and for honoring Ancestors.

Together we feed the Mystery by placing on an altar the names of ancestors and photos or mementos to honor those 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 storytelling and witnessing guides us 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 ceremony where participants share a collective experience of non-verbal, embodied story and have a chance to speak-story, too.
