I just love updating you from Tucson! I wish I could stay for the most authentically produced event I know of. It is truly transoframtional, life affirming and respectful to the traditions of the culture in this part of the world. I cannot recommend it enough, there is something for everyone who participates to feel empowered and at peace with the last stage of life.

Join the pilgrimage to Tucson, AZ this November for the culmination of a quarter century of this most unique, annual public ceremony. Over 150,000 participants will converge on downtown Tucson for one of the peak spiritual events in the country, perhaps on the planet. This free, all-ages festival is an all-inclusive, living dedication to the memory of all those who have passed, both in the previous year and in years past. This year’s finale will involve the work of several hundred performers and volunteers at the end of a massive, human-powered procession. Celebrations and events of all kinds take over the Tucson cityscape to create this one of a kind event; the weekend is filled with activities both public and private to compliment this authentic, public ceremony.
