On November lst, when the veil that separates our world from the next world is particularly thin, we invite you to our special Day of the Dead event and book launch.
Award-winning travel and culture journalist JUDITH FEIN will speak about her exciting and much-acclaimed new book, HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE DEAD: and How Cultures Do It Around The World. The book addresses the greatest mystery of the living: death, and what lies beyond. Besides being a compelling, unique, eye-popping voyage into cultural practices around the world that open to the afterlife, it actually reveals a way anyone who is interested or even curious can communicate with their dead.
Fein transports us to a Brazilian island where ancestors come back to visit the living on the Day of the Dead, and to a Maya cemetery where the living save and talk to the bones of their dearly departed. We follow her into a cave in North Africa, to tombs in Israel, to intensive training in death and rebirth with a Japanese master…and much more.
In 20 years of worldwide travels, Fein discovered that talking to the dead is a healing balm for anyone dealing with grief and loss, and provides a way for all of us to find resolution and direct answers to questions about those who have departed. Her talk and her book will open your mind and your heart and make you question the perceived finality of death. And it is a great comfort to learn how those you leave behind can communicate with you.
There will be a book sale and signing after the talk.
