Podcast #44 How Rituals Can Help Us to Change When Life Changes with Day Schildkret

On the Best Life Best Death podcast today, I talk with Day Schildkret about his life, work and art. I think you’ll enjoy how he plays with language and the root meanings of words, the images we evoke as we talk, and the sense that meaning can be made in the simplest of ways.

As Day says, “We need mechanisms in our daily, monthly, annual lives – and our personal and collective lives – that help us remember who and where we are. Life is crazy, and we can lose ourselves. Rituals help us to remember.”

Check out his “impermanent earth art” at and then have a listen to hear more from this gentle, precise, thoughtful human. I hope you will come away inspired to gather some leaves, petals, rocks and twigs and mark a change you are in the midst of!
