“In order to be fully in Love with Life, one must embrace all of Life’s aspects, including suffering, loss, and ultimately death.”
‘The Grand Connection: Funeral Procession for the Beloved Departed, Burial Mounds, and the Infinite Expansion’, by Kyle Tonkens explores traditional rituals and ceremonies surrounding death, and re-works them using a multi-disciplinary and wonderfully colourful approach, suggesting that even moments of suffering and loss may be approached from a position of love.
