About the event

For millennia and throughout our world, people have been trying to figure out what happens when our hearts stop beating. Many cultures and spiritual paths have developed death rituals, festivals, death deities and beliefs about the other world to honor and remember the dead. In this class we will explore what those beliefs are, how they shape the world around us.

About the Presenter:

Ashley Oppon is Shamanic Practitioner and Death Midwife Sankofa Healing Sanctuary. She is also a Home Funeral Guide, and an advocate for Medical Aid in Dying and Green and Natural Burials. She has done extensive death training and supports individuals from advanced planning to funerals and vigils.  She also hosts Dine with the Divine, a podcast focused on culture, mythology and history. When she isn't busy podcast or healing, you may find her gardening, crafting or working as an oncology nurse.
