Educating and Building Community 

"Knowledge gathers wood and flint and gut. Wisdom conjures a cranky, playable fiddle from the gatherings. People who have been bathed in the grief and love for life play some small magnificence on those fiddles together, and sing their unknown songs, and make human culture.” 
― Stephen Jenkinson

Attendees of our July 'Home Funeral 101' class at the gorgeous Lumber Baron Inn & Gardens in Denver. These are what the people who care about your quality of death look like. We want to add so many faces to this community that we all become unrecognizable pen-dots of death positive culture. 

Our Deeper Deathwork Class in October had a mix of death care professionals, energy workers, social workers, and all around great humans with huge hearts wanting to advance how we are caring for our dying in America. The class was deep and full of spirit and we cannot wait for the next workshop!
