Lyrion ap Tower on Death, Dying and Burial Customs

June 13, 2012  Listen Here

Lyrion and I will be exploring Death the Great Mystery. Though a huge topic for an hour discussion, we’ll be examining Death as the Great Mystery, creatively dealing with what happens after life ends; the Soul as the Great Poker Chip; paranormal experiences; how the Boomers are creating their own funeral traditions;  marketing death.

Lyrion is a High Priestess, and performs rituals of passing and tradition, and teaches seminars on death and dying in New England.



Death as Great Mystery – all religions were created to grapple with this.


The Soul as the Great Bargaining Poker Chip – do as I say & your soul will be saved – you’ll get to heaven – Bargaining with Deity


Looking into the Abyss – The Real Dark Glass

What is the meaning of life?  Famed biologist Theodosius Dobzhansky’s Biology of Ultimate Concern = YOU determining what is most important in your own life.  As valid as any other.
