520    "For all those seeking to reclaim their innate and legal 
       right to care for their own dead, create home funeral 
       vigils, and choose greener after-death care options that 
       are less toxic and more sustainable for the earth  More 
       natural after-death care options are transforming the 
       paradigm of the existing funeral industry, helping 
       families and communities recover their instinctive 
       capacity to care for a loved one after death and do so in 
       creative, nourishing, and healing ways. In reclaiming 
       these practices and creating new, innovative options, we 
       are greening the gateway of death and returning home to 
       ourselves, our bodies, and the earth. Lucinda Herring 
       reminds us of the sacredness of death itself; her 
       compelling stories, poetry, and guidance come from years 
       of experience as a home funeral/green burial consultant 
       and licensed funeral director dedicated to more natural 
       and healing death practices. In Reimagining Death she 
       shares with readers her experience caring for her own 
       mother after death. Through storytelling and resources 
       Herring also reveals to families the gifts of partnering 
       with nature, home funeral vigils, sacred care at death, 
       conscious dying (through the story of a Death with Dignity
       with accompanying photos of one man's planned death and 
       after-death care), bringing laughter and a greater 
       lightness of being to death, natural burials, and emerging
       eco-conscious dispositions. A valuable resource in 
       planning for all deaths in all circumstances (with a 
       chapter on what to do when a death occurs outside of the 
       home), this book also guides readers on how to create an 
       advance after-death care directive"--|cProvided by
