Deceased to be honoured

The Natural Death Centre is holding its third annual Day of the Dead on Sunday, November 8, at Heritage Park, Mullumbimby. It is an opportunity to come together to honour those we love.

Organiser, Zenith Virago, said in many cultures there was a Day for the Dead, whether it was All Souls Day or Halloween, it was a long-established and honoured tradition.

Ms Virago said the purpose of gathering together on those days was to honour our dead and our connection to them, so that they lived on in our hearts and memories and were not forgotten.

“These occasions allow us to do this without the rawness of the immediate death, to share our individual and collective loss, and to honour our relationship to them,” she said.

Ms Virago said it was a free event and all were welcome.
