“Julie Esterly is active in the death care movement, part of the reclamation of death as a culturally recognized part of life.
“We speak of our culture’s death rituals, the necessity of realizing death in order to fully realize life, and the connection between the denial of death and the denial of life, which takes specific form in collective ecocide.
“Is this a depressing topic? No. See if you come a little more alive through this conversation.”
This was recorded as an episode of Charles Eisenstein’s podcast “A New and Ancient Story.”
