Info for 2013:

It’s our anniversary! For 10 years Natural Transitions has been a respected resource for education about conscious, holistic and green approaches to end of life. To celebrate, we’re launching a new annual event that invites public conversation about death through the beauty and power of film—an artful and accessible means of communicating about sometimes difficult issues.

Natural Transitions Film Festival Plus: Embracing Our Living and Dying

We invite you to join us for two days of provocative films, engaging live performances, expert panels, workshops and conversation about conscious end-of-life choices and our personal relationships with death.

Day 1: Saturday, October 12, 2013

Join us at Boulder’s eTown Hall for a beautiful selection of films about green (earth-friendly) burial, a rarely-witnessed Tibetan death ritual, personal stories of decisions about dying, and more. Meet and talk with film producers, special guests and other filmgoers. Enjoy live “Epilogue” performances, and don’t miss our demonstration wake room, complete with a fully biodegradable coffin, that shows you how to “bring death home” with beauty and grace.

Day 2: Sunday, October 13, 2013 
Explore issues and resources more deeply at a full day of workshops about end-of-life care at Shining Mountain Waldorf School School in Boulder. (NOTE IMPORTANT LOCATION CHANGE: due to the high school flooding, we are in the atrium building of the school’s Festival Hall at 999 Violet and an adjacent building. We’ll post signage. Please park in the main parking lot. The Festival Hall is the northernmost large building.) Learn about the Conversation Project, develop skills in Coma Communication, share a potluck with others interested in green burial, and discover how to bring death home with family-led, green after-death care.
