This episode brings us to the Raga Room, nestled in the highly charged environment of Black Mountain, North Carolina, where Will interviews Aditi Sethi-Brown, JoJo Silverman, and Greg Lathrop. Once each season, these musicians host a Ceremonial Grief Concert that harnesses the powers of collective grieving and music to hold space for the work of spiritual transformation in the wake of grief. After listening to the episode, please check out the following links for more information.

Three other participants in the ceremony were unavailable for recording, but please check our their work, too: Musicians Jay Brown (Jaybrownmusic.com) and Jason Hebal, and Sheridan Hill (http://www.griefcircle.net/
) who functions as a grief doula in the space.
And keep your eyes peeled for the launch of the Center for Conscious Living and Dying in early 2019.
