Burying the Dead, A Spirited Conversation

This is not a workshop about death and death practices (not this time, but we’re probably due to hold one again). This is another in our series of Spirited Conversations in response to a reading, video, or podcast.

This time we’ll be responding to the first episode of Brian Pearson’s podcast Mystic Cave. He describes it like this:

Burying the Dead

In this inaugural episode of the Mystic Cave I greet my new listeners, spiritual seekers meeting on the other side of church land. I state my Intention–to chronicle my journey along this Unknown Path; my Hope–that listeners will share their stories too; and my Dream–that we will discover a new way of being fully, soulfully, and spiritually alive, minus some of the dogma and a lot of the posturing.

I launch the series with a reflection about putting the church behind us. It’s a piece I wrote for the Alexandra Writers’ Centre’s 40th Anniversary Anthology, being published later this year (2021). We can’t possibly find new life until we go back and bury our dead.
