Natural burial, or "green burial," as it is commonly called, is the way human communities have buried their dead since time immemorial. Honoring the dead by lovingly returning their bodies to the earth from which we all come is an instinctively human act. Yet in the past few generations (and only in North America), our way, of caring for and burying the dead, has cut us off from the natural cycle of birth, death and renewal. Doesn't it make sense, for the environment, and to heal our modern disconnect with natural cycles of birth, death, and renewal, that we return to traditional practices of natural burial? Learn more in this informative, passionate, and very personal service by guest UU Minister, Bill Grupton.
