Introduction to Community Death Care

February 27 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Introduction to Community Death Care

For a long time, we took care of each other at the end of life in the simple ways that humans need to be taken care of, in ways that our bodies crave; giving and receiving touch, offering nourishment, gentle comfort, soothing sounds and scents. And there was no right or wrong way to care for our people as they were transitioning. We trusted ourselves and we trusted each other. We leaned into our community and helped each other during life’s most difficult moments and we knew the favor would be returned when our time came.

We never decided to stop taking care of the people we love, we just got talked out of it. With the rapid modernization of the funeral industry, we became convinced that death and dying were inherently dangerous. And as this industry capitalized on our fears, the modern approach to death and dying was born. We began outsourcing deathcare.

The death-positive movement understands that dying is a natural part of the life cycle. We understand that death isn’t solely a medical event, but also a spiritual and social event. We want to reclaim these practices for ourselves. We believe community deathcare is in our bones and that by caring for each other at the end of life we heal ancient wounds.
