The Death Priestx (gender-neutral term) are those who tend the threshold  of transition. In this liminal space, they help the living navigate  death, and assist the dead to share their wisdom with the living. In this workshop, we explore the various roles  of the Death Priestx, and the forms this tending can take. We’ll ask  questions such as, “What is a ‘good death’? Why is it important? How  does it apply to magic and social justice work?” We’ll learn about  helpful allies, in both the manifest and unseen worlds around us, and  cover best practice suggestions. Jamie will also share her experiences  in leading a monthly community Vigil for the Good Death. 
Participants  will leave this workshop with two takeaways that can be utilized for  themselves and their communities: (1) a ritual to give something a  symbolic “good death”, and (2) an adaptable format for facilitating your  own vigil.
