Waking the Ground: Birth / Death


The first double-sided issue, “Waking the Ground”, explores the cycle between birth and death through artful and intimate essays on death doulaship, child birth, womb work, and rematriation. This lush magazine is a vibrant study in what we will need to create—and what we will need to decompose—as we cross this threshold between two worlds.
