Green and Natural Burials with Ashley Oppon (Oct. 6)
Traditional burial methods and cremation contribute heavily to our carbon footprint. Educating ourselves on natural burial methods can provide ways to give back to our planet even after death. This program will go over all the current options for green burial methods and how they can help combat climate change.
Ashley Oppon is a registered nurse and a death midwife, a home funeral guide and an advocate for medical aid in dying and green and natural burials. She has done extensive death training and supports individuals from advanced planning to funerals and vigils. Oppon is a part of Sisters of the Sacred, a spiritual collective that creates sacred space for all of life’s major moments. With her death work she hopes to make the dying process a safe space for grief and healing.
