A Ceremony for Those Who Have Died
October 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
Teachers: Hoka Chris Fortin & Jennifer Block
Location: Green Gulch Farm
In this afternoon event, people of all walks of life and loss gather to acknowledge and mourn the death of those who have died. We first create handmade offerings in the Japanese Buddhist tradition of Jizo Bodhisattva, and then say goodbye in a ceremony of remembrance and letting go. Our time together ends with a procession to the garden, where we tie paper prayers on the memorial cherry tree with the intention of nurturing the beings who have died and the beings who continue to live.
