It’s our birth-rite to have a meaningful death-rite. We spend a great deal of time planning for life’s big events such as births and weddings. We consider our options and make choices for ceremonies based on what suits our beliefs, values, and lifestyle. Why shouldn’t we also give time to the planning of funerals? Funerals are an opportunity to fully honor our loved ones. This class is an introduction for those who are eager to reclaim death as a natural rite of passage in community.
