First of all can I offer my heartfelt sentiments at this time.
As a celebrant of green burials, honouring a way of working that is completely outside what is conventional, I support you to celebrate with as much imagination as other Rites of Passage in life, and allow self expression to shine.
It is immensely liberating and may well come as a relief to know that you are not bound by ideas on what a funeral is or should involve, this is a true alternative, and can literally be what you want. And even if you are not sure what that is, I will help you.
Green Burials, Memorials and Celebration of Life Ceremonies
Please ask about green burials and all I can do to create a beautiful ceremony.
A memorial takes place a few months or more after the burial. This is an opportunity with time to have a ceremony that is dedicated to honouring and celebrating.
You may wish to have a celebration of life prior to any funeral, or else a funeral done completely differently, let me know your initial thoughts and we can create something which is right for you.
Choosing how we wish to be remembered, or how someone close to us would want to be remembered is such a powerfully significant thing. The completion of our cycle, before we return to the earth, and so why not celebrate this?
There is something so beautiful about having the freedom to connect to who we truly are, and have our lives and values represented and expressed in a liberating way, and in a way that honours our precious time on this earth.
And so it is with great honour that hold the space for what you want, in this journey of creativity and love as a lasting expression of soul.
All the ceremonies with me are alternatives to crematorium ceremonies.
Each Ceremony includes
The initial discussion to focus on what you want
My special bespoke planning session
Emphasis on what is unique about your loved one
Drafts of your ceremony, emails and phone calls
A ceremony script
Rituals to define and celebrate
Being your celebrant at the ceremony
Potential for participation from those attending
A copy of the script
A visit from me after the day if you wish
Having a relaxed ceremony enables you to really connect to your loved one and all that matters right now - know you that you are fully supported with something beautifully simple or intricate.
