NHFA May 2024 Webinar

Register to join us live or receive a recording of our webinar on Wednesday, May 29th at 8pm ET | 5pm PT – Wrapped in Love: Brief History and Modern Applications of Burial Shoulds with Dr. Tamara Joy Rettino, DACM of Acupunktrix.

Dr. Tamara Joy Rettino, DACM lives in Buffalo, NY with her partner and owns a bustling clinic called Acupunktrix where she is an acupuncturist, herbalist, and Threshold Guide supporting others through life's transitions and liminal spaces such as life-changing illness, gender transitions, birth and death (including home funerals).  Tamara is a mother of four grown children and is currently writing a practical guide on death and dying for Llewellyn Publications, and has taught six-week courses on burial shrouds for Morbid Anatomy. In December of 2023, Tamara suffered a sudden stroke, brain hemorrhage, and massive seizure resulting in a shattered spine and broken shoulder. She faced death (not for the first time), and feels the experience has deeply enriched her facility for empathy and understanding of the needs of her patients and clients. In her free time, Tamara creates art, experiments with sound and music, and forages in the local woods.
