Death is universal, but the rituals sur­rounding it seem to vary tremendously across cultures. For instance, Tibetan Buddhists meditate and pray to help the dead as they transition from their bodies and continue along their spiritual journey. For Mexicans and Mexican Americans, Día de los Muertos provides an opportu­nity to remember a loved one by creating an altar. By arranging and rearranging symbolic objects, mourners also shift something within themselves.

This special experiential workshop will help participants discover ways in which grief rituals around the world are more similar than might meet the eye. Participants must bring an object or photo that represents a meaningful death in their lives.
