SCHEDULED BOULDER, COLORADO-BASED WORKSHOPS
FAMILY-LED GREEN AFTER-DEATH CARE – The next workshop will take place on Sunday, October 13 on Day 2 of NATURAL TRANSITIONS FESTIVAL. We’ll be announcing details soon, meanwhile please SAVE THE DATE.
This workshop covers:
Concerns about caring for our dead, ourselves; Recognizing the dying process ; Practical & loving care of the body; Legalities, coroner concerns and death certificates ; Revisiting concerns, questions and closing.
This is a practical, hands-on workshop providing you with the tools and knowledge to be able to care for your own dead at home — without requiring a funeral home. A home funeral is an intimate and healing way of honoring the sacred transition of death. It is completely legal in the state of Colorado and in most other states, families may care for their own dead.
HOW TO REGISTER. Details soon. When we announce this, you can download the NT Workshop registration form 2013, fill it out, and mail a check to Natural Transitions, 3980 N. Broadway, Suite#103-171, Boulder, CO 80304.

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.”
