From Here to Eternity: Traveling the World to Find the Good Death
From Here to Eternity: Traveling the World to Find the Good Death | Caitlin Doughty
The best-selling author of Smoke Gets in Your Eyes expands our sense of what it means to treat the dead with dignity. Fascinated by our pervasive terror of dead bodies, mortician Caitlin Doughty set out to discover how other cultures care for their dead. In rural Indonesia, she observes a man clean and dress his grandfathers mummified body. Grandpas mummy has lived in the family home for two years, where the family has maintained a warm and respectful relationship. She meets Bolivian natitas (cigarette- smoking, wish- granting human skulls), and introduces us to a Japanese kotsuage, in which relatives use chopsticks to pluck their loved- ones bones from cremation ashes. With curiosity and morbid humor, Doughty encounters vividly decomposed bodies and participates in compelling, powerful death practices almost entirely unknown in America. Featuring Gorey-esque illustrations by artist Landis Blair, From Here to Eternity introduces death-care innovators researching green burial and body composting, explores new spaces for mourning including a glowing- Buddha columbarium in Japan and Americas only open-air pyre and reveals unexpected new possibilities for our own death rituals.

Wonderful book that doesn't rush through its content. Author let's you soak in the cultures described while keeping you informed. Honestly, the descriptions and personal accounts were beautiful and sometimes sobering. The chapter regarding Japan is one of my favorites.

Nothing better than listening to a book narrated by the queen of death herself Caitlin on a thunderstorm-y day. I grew up with a family who owned a funeral home and I was always fascinated by death/funeral culture. I was shocked and delighted to learn about these intricate beliefs about death from other cultures. I am moving along in my death acceptance journey.

A fascinating and moving account of death rituals around the world. It gets very personal, though not so much to Caitlin herself, at times. I really appreciated her respectfulness and advice at the end on how you can also be a respectful death tourist.

“Since we had brought the offerings, I figured I had better talk to one of the ñatitas. I asked Nacho to influence the [2016] U.S. presidential election; which was being held the next day. I can only assume that either Nacho was not the right ñatita for American political matters or was rusty in his English.”

Ñatitas are skulls that people of La Paz, Bolivia, believe have special powers and can grant favors. Very cool thing to learn about.

Serious TW for pregnancy loss in the Mexico chapter. Thankfully I haven‘t experienced it and it doesn‘t trigger me, but I have enough friends who would be devastated to come upon this chapter unexpectedly that I thought I‘d mention it. The stories are wrenching.

Also: I didn‘t realize this book was illustrated before I started reading it! The drawings are lovely.

5 ⭐️s!!
Caitlin Doughty is one of my favorite people to watch on YouTube, and I‘m JUST now getting around to reading one of her books!
This one covers her world travels to experience the death rituals of other cultures. It was a beautiful journey through what, especially for Westerners, can be an ugly topic.
Over the years, she‘s inspired me with her death positivity and I now feel much better about my plans for my body when I pass on.

megnews I‘m so thankful you posted this. I try to be a minimalist, low materialism. I‘ve never understood all the $ on funerals, caskets etc., why we need our bodies to stay intact forever (or as long as possible.) I plan to be buried in a shroud at a green natural cemetery. I‘ve just been telling my kids my plans so they have time to get used to the idea. So I‘m very interested in reading this. 11mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @megnews That‘s my plan as well! Although, like Caitlin, my REAL dream would be to be consumed by animals in a form of sky burial. But America isn‘t quite ready for that unfortunately. If you haven‘t checked out her YouTube channel, Ask A Mortician, I can‘t recommend it enough! 11mo
megnews I‘ll check it out. Thanks! 11mo

This is a book for those interested in the dark, in Death, the macabre, and other cultures of the world. There was a lot of interesting insight. I personally found it fascinating as Caitlin traveled the world and explained how other cultures view and process death/dying. It really gave me a lot to ruminate on, as far as what the Western world views as acceptable, and made me really think hard as to where & how I'd like to go when it is my time.

Merry Christmas Eve! I'm 2 chapters into my re-read of Pillars by Follett and I am hoping to finish up From Here To Eternity by Caitlin Doughty today. It's a short 200 page book, and I'm 100 in so shouldn't have a problem!
My plan is just to chill today, relaxing and read, watch movies and just generally have a low key day.
Happy reading, everyone, and Merry Christmas

Whether we like it or not, we all have to face death some day, so it‘s interesting to see how people do so in a handful of places in the world, alongside Caitlin Doughty‘s humor. I‘m so glad she decided to write about death, though I have to say I‘m glad I don‘t live in Tana Toraja, Indonesia. I just can‘t quite imagine participating in their ritual.

IuliaC I really liked this one, very informative :) 2y

I‘m also intrigued by a couple of innovative ways to dispose of bodies that allows people to be properly and ceremoniously returned to the earth.

I loved this book so much I listened to it twice in three days!
Doughty tells about her travels all over the world, experiencing funerary practices in Japan, Colorado, Spain, and more. She compares them to the practices here in the US and how the corporatization of funerals in America has taken away much of the cultural significance and familial ties it once had.

The 1st chapter hit close to home, as I‘ve had my dad and 2 cats cremated since June 2020. I would have felt better about the process if I could have spent more time with Dad‘s body, or had a ceremony like that at the outdoor pyre in Colorado. This urn contains some of Dad‘s ashes that I sometimes bring with me when I travel. Here, at Horseshoe Bay in Bermuda in February. I know it‘s a little weird but it makes me feel more connected to him.

kspenmoll I do not think it is weird at all. I‘m sure he is happy to travel with you.💕💕 2y

Megabooks There‘s no one right way with the death of a pet or family member. There is the best choice for you. As a veterinarian, I have seen grief expressed a lot of ways, and they‘re all valid. 2y

Another fascinating read from Doughty! Unfortunately so many people believe American = normal when it comes to funerals/burials, but this book shows the broad range of “normal” in 10 countries.

I was glad to learn more about the Sky Burials of Tibetan Buddhists that I read about in Eat the Buddha. But personally, I want to end up in a futuristic Japanese columbarium. They sound much more awesome than the simple courtyard one at my church. 4⭐️🎧

This book was so good. It is so hard (in American culture) to talk about dying, mortality, and grief. This book wasn't technically about those things- it was just about dead bodies. But it told stories about how different cultures around the world handle and interact with dead bodies and how our treatment and interactions with dead bodies shape our perceptions on dying, death, how we process those things, and how we handle grief.

sarahlandis This book challenged me to look at my thoughts on funerals and dead bodies and I honestly learned so much. Each chapter was a story from a different culture that the author got to experience and she had a nice conversational tone that told these memoir-esque stories while supplying so much educational information. 2y

This book is important, I think especially for Americans because we do avoid the topic so fervently. If we address it more, and better less fear would be created.

Doughty makes death fun and interesting... is that wrong to say? She‘d probably approve. But this is a great book, and it shows different cultural perspectives on death. It‘s not meant to desensitize but to normalize death. We shouldn‘t be afraid of it, and we should open our eyes to the different ways in which it is handled.

Such a great read about death / mourning practices around the world. Really puts into perspective how prejudiced people are about death rituals other than their own. I loved learning about the ñatitos of La Paz & the mummies of South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The closeness & confrontation of death seems so much healthier than the US funeral industrial complex. Overall, incredibly interesting read mixing travel / cultural exploration with death rituals.

The best book I‘ve read so far this year! To be fair (🎶), I was predisposed to love it. As a lapsed Catholic; the proud (?) possessor of a Religious Studies degree; a sometimes Wedding officiant; & a soon-to-be student of Life Cycle Celebrancy, Doughty‘s book, which explores global rituals & practices — particularly, those surrounding death & grief — is right up my alley.👇🏻

monalyisha 1/1: Please excuse me. I‘m off to nurse my book hangover & lament the fact that I don‘t live in Crestone, CO. If I did, it would mean that when I died (hopefully a long time from now!), my body would be covered in freshly-cut juniper branches & placed upon the only public, open-air funeral pyre in the US. My family would gather to mourn me beside the flames, underneath the blue, blue sky. Now, *that‘s* a send-off! 🙏🏻 (edited) 3y
Tamra Your post reminds me of a podcast I listened to about a rural Grecian ceremony of unearthing the remains of loved ones after 5 years, cleaning the bones, and then they get packed into a box for storage onsite. I suppose it has the practical purpose of making space, but you‘d think the bones would be disposed of in some customary way too. 3y
monalyisha @Tamra It‘s so fascinating, right?! CD visited South Sulawesi in Indonesia & a crematorium in Japan, where there were similar practices of families cleaning the body &/or the bones. 3y

I have practically inhaled her three books in the last couple of weeks. They are so good! I am feeling a little bit better about death. It was always so scary and taboo to talk or even think about, but reading these books I feel more comfortable talking about what I and my loved ones want when the time comes. This book was very interesting as it focuses on different communities death rituals. Highly recommend, but I am still reading...
