Funerals & Memorials
Ritual and ceremony at the time of death can be rich with meaning, healing and inspiration.
Whether the ceremony is a funeral or farewell service, a celebration of life, a memorial service or a wake, it is a powerful and often painful rite of passage that signifies a farewell, a time of letting go and the beginning of a new relationship with the person who has gone.
It can offer an opportunity to acknowledge and embrace the grief, sadness and loss that family and friends are experiencing.
The ceremony is about creating a safe space where the individuals’ life can be honoured, affirmed and validated. It is important to acknowledge the person’s beliefs and values, their stories and personality; the essence that made them unique, giving space for the expression of all that was felt for the person who has died.
There are many beliefs about what life and death mean and in this light, each ceremony will be unique. The beliefs expressed may be spiritual or secular, or a blend of the two perspectives.
When you contact me to conduct a funeral or memorial service for your loved one
We will arrange a meeting if possible and talk to you about their life and their beliefs. Share your experiences, history, feelings, thoughts and memories. I will ask you important questions that will enable me to see the person that they were and to honor and celebrate their lives in the most sensitive and respectful way.
