CiacchiDrummingTeri Ciachi, Tai Fenix Kulystin & Karissa Ronkin presenting “Earth My Body: Soul Ceremonies.”

How do we create meaningful rituals to honor the presence of death in our lives?  Depth Psychology and EcoPsychology offer pathways to the wisdom and strength that is needed when we are called upon to respectfully acknowledge the end of an individual human life; the death of a beloved animal; or the destruction of Nature. Soul Ceremonies allow us to adequately “be with” and integrate the impact of death on our individual and collective psyches. Learn the foundations of ritual design and construction; using sound, symbolism, deep witnessing and altar making to provide a sacred context for death.

Reverend Teri D. Ciacchi is founding director of Living Love Revolution, an organization engaged in the sacred activism of embodying love as a central value and ethic. Having earned a BA in Human Ecology and a Master’s in Social Work at the age of 28, Reverend Ciacchi spent the next 20+ years developing a system of private session work, classes, and events that provide healing from the shame and traumas that prevent people from powerfully interrupting their own oppression and the destruction of natural habitats. Reverend Ciacchi creates Soul Ceremonies for births, deaths, marriages and other human rites of passage.
