FOLK HERBAL REVIVAL: THE TALKS (this is an ongoing and growing list, more details to come)

Wednesday September 26, 2018: A Conversation on Death & Dying with Tyla Cosgrove & Tiffany Freeman

Tyla Cosgrove is a Death Care Practitioner and a graduate of the Stephen Jenkinson’s Orphan Wisdom School (2016).  She has since then travelled to many Orphan Wisdom teachings throughout Canada as well as Iceland to explore rituals that are becoming to the making of humans.  She completed her in class funeral director program at Mount Royal University in 2018 in a further effort to serve the community she works and lives in at time of death, when death is at the door and for when we are contemplating deaths mysteries.

Inspired by Irish Wake tradition, she has spent time in the last three years cultivating a kinship with her ancestral homeland in Ireland by both travel and study. This inquiry both physically and otherwise intends to build a bridge to the instructive ways of relationship to a place, it’s customs and its practices around ceremony including death and dying.

Tyla works as the Community Outreach Director for Blank Page Studio, bringing people together for meals and consulting in the areas of finding more meaning in work, life, death and ones relationships. It is through this work that she finds herself currently in the roll of curating a show entitled ‘Shelter for What Remains’. The show has employed eight Calgary artists to make funerary vessels that will be presented at Leyden’s Funeral Home on 17thAvenue, in a gallery showing on October the 4th from 6-9pm.
