Registration for Days of the Dead at Mountain Lamp

Event Information

Please read and make note of the information offered below:

On retreat we honor the Mexican tradition of Days of the Dead. We remember our beloved ones who have already died and celebrate life, unknown and unknowable, unfolding moment by moment. In this time of pandemic, how do we begin to understand the loss of so many lives, to hold the sorrow and uncertainty we are living through? Practicing in silence, cultivating concentration, we return, touching that which is unborn and undying.

On this retreat we will create an altar, an offering, to honor those who have died. Please bring a photo of your beloved ones or a small object to represent them for our ceremony and celebration.
