January 8, 2019 Book Launch

My book Reimagining Death: Stories and Practical Wisdom for Home Funerals and Green Burials is available January 8, 2019 in bookstores across the country, and online through Penguin Random House, Amazon and many other sites.   I am happy to say that the book has been reviewed by Publisher’s Weekly and Library Journal, which means it will receive a lot more exposure and publicity in the year to come.

The book is riding the wave of a collective interest and enthusiasm for changing the paradigm of the way we “do death” today.  The home funeral and natural burial/disposition movement, under the larger name “green funeral movement” is  transforming existing funeral industry practices, ones that are increasingly impersonal and toxic to the earth and our environment, and are not sustainable for the future.

One of my intentions in writing the book was to highlight the spiritual and environmental cost of modern day funeral industry practices, and to offer more hands-on, creative and participatory ways that care for each other and the earth at the end of life.  Please buy your copy today.  Thank you!
