Lucinda Herring trained to be a Waldorf kindergarten teacher with Margret Meyerkort in Gloucestershire, England in 1982, and helped start a Waldorf early childhood program outside Oxford by celebrating the festivals with parents and children around the year. When she moved to Whidbey Island in 1988, she continued her festival and ecological work through the Festival Guild - building community by practicing the art of celebration with all realms of life through the seasons, and at key threshold times in people's lives. Though still a festival maker, Lucinda mainly works at the threshold of death today, helping families and communities care for their own dead and for the earth again in more natural, creative and healing ways. She has just published a book: Reimagining Death: Stories and Practical Wisdom for Home Funerals and Green Burials. North Atlantic Books. 2019.
