Event description
A community workshop with Heidi Boucher at beautiful Polcum Springs

About this Event

The time between a person’s crossing the threshold of death and the burial or cremation is a powerful period of transition for both the person who has died and for grieving family and friends. When families are supported in reclaiming these powerful experiences in their own unique ways, they find that the healing process is deepened and connections with one another are strengthened.

Join Heidi Boucher and others for an intimate look at the benefits of family directed funerals and after-death care in the home from practical, emotional and sacred perspectives. Topics that will be touched upon in this half-day workshop include:

o What is a family-directed funeral

o Understanding death care choices

o Honoring the deceased without unnecessary costs

o Levels of involvement and use of community professionals

o Caring for the body for up to three days following death

o Washing and dressing the body

o Creating a sacred space for loved ones to gather

About Heidi Boucher

Heidi Boucher has over 30 years experience guiding families in caring for their own dead.
