In this 2-hour class we will begin the crucial conversation of decolonizing death and explore the medicine of loss, endings, and ultimately, transformation. We will look specifically at current colonial issues in the death care industry including:

  • who within the settler colony of the United States dies ‘the most’ and is least likely to experience a ‘good death’
  • the colonial history of funeral homes and funeral practices in the US
  • the ecological impact of both burials and cremation, and what natural/eco options are available these days
  • the importance of honoring our dead by reclaiming home funeral ceremonies

Batul will also go into their favorite Death Medicines such as Inmortal (Helichrysum), Floripondio (Angel’s Trumpet), Cempazuchitl (African/Mexican Marigold), Carnation, and Chrysanthemum. Batul will highlight these flowers and share about their physical and emotional benefits as well as how to work with these plants energetically during the time of dying and death.
