Virtual Grieving Tree for honoring the precious lives lost from COVIC-19

A virtual grieving space is offered from June 6th to June 13th, 2021, remotely broadcasting around the Grieiving Tree from the Lamvert campus of Pacifica Graduate Institute, CA.

Due to the tragic nature of the pandemic, most families could not bid farewell to their loved ones fully. As a collective spirit, we invite you to this event for tending your suffering and loss while share hearts through collective mourning.

Please join us in this special week of commemoration and share this with others. For more information, please visit the website, grievingtree.org.

Covid 19 has meant that there have been times over the past year when attending a loved ones funeral was not allowed, due to local or national lockdown restrictions. Restrictions concerning the amount of guests allowed to attend funerals and travel restictions still stand. However, even without being present at the funeral there are different ways that you can honor and remember the deceased.

End-Of-Life Care Resource

Posted by Maggieg on Nov. 30, 2020, 12:38 p.m.


this is an affordable resource for those who have limited income and can not afford to publish an obituary in the newspaper. the obituary is not limited by size of the newspaper, or local area where the newspaper reaches. it can inform everyone; past and present from any community where one has lived that someone has died in real time. This is important to me because I have lost friends years after the fact and was devastated to hear about it.

The Role of the Dead in Our Lives

“We don’t die alone,” says psychologist James Hillman, “Death is communal, entering the community of the dead, and the dead are already present in the heart.”

Thoughts on COVID-19

Posted by libbyhall on April 17, 2020, 11:26 a.m.


I was delighted to read about Death Cafes in the Guardian last week. I wondered how I didn’t know about them. Especially as it all began in Hackney, and I have lived in Hackney for the last 53 years of my 78 years.
 
I don’t have much stamina now and it would be difficult for to to keep to a daily conversation. I am very much enjoying reading previous blogs and looking at videos. I should be able to come back to my computer and read a bit more every day now.
 
I would like to share with you two selfies – with their captions -  and a link to a film that was made in 2012 about me getting my tattoos. The tattoos were done before I was ill. I’m especially glad now that I had them done when I did.
 
 
 
 
It’s an honour to be part of the Death Cafe community. I only wish I had known about it from its beginnings when I might have been more actively involved – and actually shared coffee and cake with you!

Posted by ElyDeathCafe on Feb. 10, 2020, 12:25 p.m.


A friend in India sent me this about the Kashi Labh guest house in Varanasi, the place people go to die. I was curious about the journalist so here's the back story too.

Project FUEL was founded in 2009 by Deepak Ramola when he was 17:

Alan Watts on Death

Posted by Shaheda on June 13, 2019, 12:39 p.m.


"Day after day we remember the days that have gone on before, even though there is the interval of sleep. Finally there comes a time when, if we consider what is to our true liking, we will want to forget everything that went before. Then we can have the extraordinary experience of seeing the world once again through the eyes of a baby – whatever kind of baby. Then it will be completely new and we will have all the startling wonder that a child has, all the vividness of perception which we wouldn’t have if we remembered everything forever."
