Are we not all woven like bright blossoms
With strands of light into one flowering wreath –
Those of us who breathe the breath of heaven
And those who breathe the naked air beneath.

So like one unfading cosmic garland,
So firmly, ever newly intertwined,
We weave the life-web of the seamless garment
Of the spirit being of humankind.

What does it mean to create death-caring communities? How can we approach the threshold both as individuals and together?

These were the key thoughts as we met in Ghent, New York, on April 26, 27, 28 for our second national conference on death and dying, The Sacred Gateway: Conscious Living, Conscious Dying, and the Journey Beyond. Thanks to everyone who organized, presented, supported and participated!

In our communities, we have been working for decades with the beautiful understanding of the threshold of death that Rudolf Steiner has offered. As we watch the conscious dying movement become visible on a national level, we invite you to connect with others who are interested in this important passage.

To continue to expand your understanding of the threshold journey, visit our store for the two series of Sacred Gateway webinars!
