Death Faire 2019:


KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Charles Eisenstein, author

Charles Eisenstein is a teacher, public speaker, gift economy advocate, and the author of several books including The Ascent of Humanity, Sacred Economics, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible and Climate – A New Story.

“What we observe to be happening in the world says as much about ourselves as it does about the world. It reveals what we think is important, significant, valuable, and sacred, and what is irrelevant or useless too. Put another way, what we see reveals how we see.”

From his book, Climate: A New Story.

Join us to hear Charles speak of civilization, consciousness, death, climate, and the human cultural evolution.  You will see things in a different way.  A way that might help you and humanity.

“…We have barely disembarked into life…we’ve only just now been born, let’s not fill our mouths with so many uncertain names, with so many sad labels, with so many pompous letters, with so much yours and mine, with so much signing of papers. I intend to confuse things, to unite them, make them new-born intermingle them, undress them, until the light of the world has the unity of the ocean, a generous wholeness, a fragrance alive and crackling.”
― Pablo Neruda
