The Tree of Living & Dying Gathering for Sacred Story is a ceremony of remembrance. It’s held annually in Ashland, Oregon each autumn. We place names of ancestors, along with photos or mementos, on a central altar built 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 grief and death as part of life.

I loved this. I was moved by the ceremony and storytelling and so was my friend. We both agreed that the evening was transformative.

My friend who came with me said that during the ceremony she realized that “all has been forgiven in her family.”
