Home funeral and green burial represent a return to natural, simple and personal methods of honoring and caring for our dead. A home funeral can bring healing and comfort to friends and family and is a normal extension of hospice care at home. This workshop is for End-of-Life Doulas, hospice workers, those in the funeral industry, and anyone who wishes to have the knowledge to plan ahead for self, family or friends. Participants will learn:

  • Current funeral practices in the U.S.
  • How to care for the body at home after death
  • Creating sacred space and funeral ceremony or ritual
  • Legal and cost considerations
  • How to locate and work with a funeral director
  • Special circumstances
  • Green Burial (What is it and where is it available?)
  • The importance of planning ahead
  • How to form a circle of support
