Life/Death/Rebirth ritual
I'm looking for an account of a life/death/rebirth ritual. My preferred pantheons would be something American (North, South or Central) or Taoist, and I flat refuse to work with any Celtic imagery.

Can anyone point me to the right place to look?

Re: Life/Death/Rebirth ritual
And what would be the purpose in this, exactly? *confused*

Re: Life/Death/Rebirth ritual
Well the purpose would be to do the ritual, after first tweaking it (if necessary) to be as appropriate as possible.

Re: Life/Death/Rebirth ritual
So the purpose is entirely to spend the time doing it?

Re: Life/Death/Rebirth ritual
i know that in shamanic systems there's often a death/rebirth component, either a ritual, or just a journey. for me, it "happened" on a journey very early, it was a "welcoming ritual" my spirit companions made for me.

googling for "shamanism death rebirth" brings a lot of results, such as:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.shamans-cave.com/Shaman_And_The_Shadow.html">http://www.shamans-cave.com/Shaman_And_The_Shadow.html</a><!-- m -->

this one requires a group, but perhaps there's a way to alter it for your needs:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.peggyblack.com/SoundPod/process-death-rebirth.htm">http://www.peggyblack.com/SoundPod/proc ... ebirth.htm</a><!-- m -->

i didn't look at all the results, hope it helps.

Re: Life/Death/Rebirth ritual
Not exactly a ritual, but this one gives a lot of information about shamanic death and rebirth. Warning: it's very long, but worth the read.

Archer, you may not want to spend the money for it, but Nana Nauwald, who's been researching shamanic poses and trances for decades, has a book out (with the late Felicitas D. Goodman) covering various poses used by shamans for their rituals. Many of the postures are taken from Native American (usually Mesoamerica) statues, but there's also a good few from Europe and elsewhere; there's a whole section on Death/Rebirth postures.

Hope that helps.

And should it be that we shall never meet again,
Know that I will always keep you in my heart,
And I will search for you in that time beyond time
Until we do meet again, and you will know
That love and family are the miracles of the world.
