Memories to Meadows: Nurturing the Future with Terramation

In this episode of "Comforting Closure - Conversations with a Death Doula," host Traci Arieli talks to Micah Truman, founder and CEO of Return Home, about the innovative and eco-conscious world of Terramation. 

Terramation, or human composting, offers an eco-friendly approach to afterlife care, turning human remains into nutrient-rich soil and providing a sustainable alternative to traditional burial and cremation methods. This process not only honors our loved ones but also gives back to the earth, allowing for a legacy that continues to nurture life long after we're gone. 

Join Traci and Micah as they explore: 

  • The inspiration behind Return Home and the journey to embracing Terramation. 

  • The detailed process and environmental benefits of Terramation. 

  • How Terramation can change our relationship with grief and the memory of our loved ones. 

  • The future of sustainable afterlife care and its impact on society.
