Nefertiti Moor – a grief/loss supporter and end-of-life doula – will facilitate this two-part gathering: a death meditation to break taboos and relieve our anxieties, followed by a living funeral ceremony to honor our fathers, father-figures, grandparents, and ancestors as well as to reflect on how we want to be remembered. By acknowledging the arc of the human life cycle, we will discuss planning, legacy, and relationships that need more attention and love. After the ceremony, Nefertiti will lead participants in breathwork exercises to calm and recenter those processing painful loss of loved ones.
Nefertiti Moor is a creatress, green burial planner, grief/loss supporter and home funeral guide. An Anishinaabe land (Detroit, MI) native and currently living on Lenape land (Philadelphia, PA), Nefertiti has never been ashamed of where she comes from or where she's going in regards to community work. By actively healing childhood traumas, Nefertiti continues to embrace the strength in her sensitivity and empathy by utilizing it to support others.
Although Nefertiti has been intrigued by death for as far back as she can remember, the passing of her grandfather is what brought her even closer to the death work and offerings that she gives to the community today. She holds dear to her heart the fact that grief, end of life discussions/planning, and home funeral options go so underserved in the Black community and she seeks to change that through dedication, focus and action.
In her free time, Nefertiti loves to spend time with her son, eat lots of good food, frolic in nature, create scented candles, pay homage to her ancestors, and talk about death-positive things.
