Death Workshop with Dr Caroline Tully

The cycle of birth, death and rebirth is at the core of Pagan mythology. Many myths deal
with journeys into the land of the dead. Often these are stories of descent and return. These
myths show us how the cycle of birth, growth, death, and rebirth plays itself out in the
seasons. Working with these myths, retelling the tales, and exploring them in guided
journeys and meditations can help us deeply integrate our understanding of the circle of
rebirth. Initiation rites found in most Pagan mystery religions, both ancient and modern, re-
enact or are inspired by myths of descent into the Underworld and approach death through
metaphor and ritual. This workshop explores Underworld myths of Inanna’s Descent,
Demeter and Persephone, Orpheus and Eurydice, Circe and Odysseus, Aeneas and the Sybil,
and others. We will explore ancient mythologies and practices around death, as well as
Pagan ways of celebrating and mourning loved ones including funerary rites and ancestor

Dr Caroline Tully has a background in various traditions of witchcraft and magic/k and is also
an academic who studies ancient Mediterranean Pagan religions and their manifestation in
the modern world.
