Learning to Die in Order to Live

In a matter of minutes, filmmaker Michelle Mahoney manages to weave together the story of Dr. Scott Eberle’s dual role as a rite of passage guide—both supporting people who are dying physically, and guiding those who are dying symbolically as part of a wilderness fast.
 

The real ceremony begins where the formal one ends, when we take up a new way, our minds and hearts filled with the vision of earth that holds us within it, in compassionate relationship to and with our world.
