Theme of the Show: Post-Death Care and Home Funerals – Part 1
Guest: Ruth Tschannen, Heidi Bouche – www.InTheParlor.com
Lead Host: Abegael Fisher-Lang
Since time began, people in all cultures have cared for the dying, and created ceremonies to honour their transitions. There is now a renaissance of interest in the wisdom of ancient death traditions and renewal of older death practices appropriate to our modern-day life. Today we speak with film-maker Heidi Boucher, creator of the documentary In the Parlor the Final Goodbye which celebrates the wisdom of home funerals. Ruth Tschannen has participated in countless home funerals in her work with Camphill Villages in three countries.
