End of Life Rites
Fire is the symbol of transition.
Just as life and death are transitions from one state to another. The Shaman can help ease the fears about the impending transition, both for the dying and for family and friends.
The shaman can bring light to the process
and help the dying person
reconcile and balance relationships
and events in their life.
This helps alleviate burdens and attachments to this life making
the transition less frightening
This work helps the dying understand
that they are merely transitioning
from one state to another,
and that their process
is supported well by Spirit.
