June 9th event: Virtual Memorial Service, Graveside Service, Green Burial

Please join us on Tuesday, June 9, 7-9 p.m. (Central Time), as MTN members Anne Archbold, Marilaurice Hemlock, and Karen Greer share their experiences with creating and facilitating memorial services during the complicated coronavirus time.

Even though we at MTN view funeral possibilities in a much broader context than many, this pandemic has gotten us to stretch even further – to Zoom!
  • Zoom helps us be a part of a memorable funeral from our living room or office.
    It can be a smaller group setting where you share with others in an informal way rather than a formal setting.
    Families can tell stories and show memorabilia that was left behind by the deceased.
    Zoom can save us from flying across the country to attend a relative or friend’s funeral.

A quote on solitude and community by Parker Palmer:

Solitude does not necessarily mean living apart from others; rather, it means never living apart from one’s self. It is not about the absence of other people—it is about being fully present to ourselves, whether or not we are with others. Community does not necessarily mean living face-to-face with others; rather, it means never losing the awareness that we are connected to each other. It is not about the presence of other people—it is about being fully open to the reality of relationship, whether or not we are alone.

Resource: Loving, Living, and Dying During COVID-19

In Minnesota, a group of last responders, death educators, and EOLDs in our community created “Loving, Living, and Dying During COVID-19” as a way to share and distribute accurate, compassionate and relevant information. This was designed to be helpful to everyone in Minnesota – families, caregivers, guides. Thanks to the thoughtful team that worked on this so quickly. Please share it as widely as you can.
