Recovering Tradition: Rituals of Laying Out and Vigil with Annie Bolitho

This one and a half hour workshop with end of life practitioner Annie Bolitho of Kinship Ritual brings participants into the space of caring for someone after they’ve died, in the familiar surroundings of home. We’ll warm up to what matters, through introductions in the group, explore background on the practice of vigils and of helping families who want to stay at home. How do we sit with the dead, journey with the dead? We’ll enter into the quiet of ritual and look at various techniques that enable cooling, closing with an opportunity to join in questions and facilitated discussion.
