Reciprocity as a form of gratitude and natural burial as a way to be in reciprocity with Mother Earth

Michelle and Evergreen join to jointly celebrate the explosion of life in spring (Beltane), and the concept of green burials. We weave ways to show how that connection shows our love for Earth, our only home, and how that weaving leads to a beautiful reciprocity between humans and Gaia.
