CTCW welcomes Lyrion ap Tower on Otherworldly Wednesday speaking about Death.
Lyrion is High Priestess of the (New Hampshire) Granite Tower and an accomplished ritualist who conducts all Rites of Passage for individuals and Covens throughout the New England area.
Years ago, Lyrion and her husband/ Priest Raven presented a session at CTCW in Northampton on Aspects of Death and Dying for Pagans, called “The Ochre Spiral”. Because the topic is so large, the session was limited to the topics: Death as the Great Mystery, Preparations for the Dark Times, The Language of Death, Two Ways to Die, Final Wishes of the Dying (making and carrying out). This past year she has added a new and pertinent segment: “Death in the Time of Covid”. She has also been privileged to personally midwife passages to the West for five friends and officiate at four graveyard interments.
