Shrouding Circles

A Shrouding Circle is an opportunity to practice caring for a “body” (a volunteer from your group) in a sacred manner. It also offers the one who is playing the deceased person to experience what it would be like to be cared for in this way, and can be truly profound for all involved.

Convening a Shrouding Circle has the potential to grow into a precious bonding experience. Imagine a small group making a commitment to “be there” for one another, having learned the ancient art of caring for our own dead. You can read a full illustrated description of a shrouding circle event at the Integral Thanatology Institute.
