Zen and the Art of Dying

August 30, 2018, 6:30pm8:00pm

A conversation with funeral celebrant Zenith Virago

How might friends and family members feel more empowered with the death of a loved one? In what ways can the funeral ceremony provide a space for both celebration and healing?

Join Green-Wood’s death educator Amy Cunningham for an enlightening discussion with acclaimed death celebrant and founder of the Natural Death Centre in Byron Bay, Australia, Zenith Virago about how family-centered memorials can be the best beginning to the grieving process. She will explore how bereavement can be influenced and assisted by meaningful rituals. Virago, an advocate and educator, has been guiding the coastal region of Byron Bay for over 25 years towards a more creative, communal, and celebratory engagement with death and dying.

Free to attend, RSVP recommended. Please register using the Eventbrite box below.
