Promession – Ecological burial

The conceptual idea is to combine biological knowledge with a dignified and ethically correct way of being remembered by ones next of kin. The primary principles are preservation after death in organic form and shallow burial in living soil that quickly converts us to mulch.

The fact that this way of thinking is contrary to many customs, yet we should try to adopt a more natural approach to our life and our death. Today’s burial traditions conceal reality from people and do not allow them to feel secure in the fact that death is essential to new life.

Deeper insights in ecology provide greater understanding of and respect for life on earth. With the knowledge of what happens to the body after death, it is Promessas hope that people will find greater security in their physical fate. This, in turn, can give our minds greater freedom to ponder the spiritual issues that we all carry within ourselves.
