Overcome your fears and step into the most personal, healing way of preparing for a loved-one’s death and caring for them when they transition. This hands-on workshop gives you all the tools and knowledge you need to be able to care for your own dead at home, just as our ancestors did. Our focus is:
- Overcoming fears
- History of funeral care
- Techniques for practical, loving care of the body
- Legalities and coroner concerns
- Home vigils and wakes
- Earth-friendly burial options
Edward Leonard of Berryville, Virgina, a marketing consultant for a monastery with a natural burial ground, attended our April 2011 2-day training in death care, including home funeral guidance. Here’s what he had to say:
“I signed up for the Natural Transitions’ training with only a vague notion about the social phenomenon of reclaiming control and dignity over the dying process and low-environmental-impact funerals. The Natural Transitions’ class was professionally executed and provided me with a framework that I am now using as I design and implement a 150-acre natural cemetery. The course introduced me to concepts that I plan to share with clients who want to manage their own death process, but who may not know what questions to ask.”
Patricia E. Participant in the 2013 NT workshop said:“The NT workshop presenters created a warm and caring workshop that delicately handled some very sensitive topics. I appreciated the pace of what we covered, which allowed time for reflection and for information to sink in. From the powerpoint to the carefully prepared notebook to the hands-on experience, I left having learned much more than I knew upon arrival! ”
