Event description

Description

Join us to explore the body, mind, and soul of meaningful funerals and memorials. How do you hope that mourners will celebrate you? How will you plan your loved one's service? With reverance, and a fair dash of fun, we will open this conversation...

BODY: The nuts and bolts of Funeral Directing

  • What do we do with this body? And how do we get it from here to there?
  • Where will the services be held? Is it during the day or at night? Inside or Outside?
  • At home or in the cemetery? What kinds of scents or sounds will fill the air?

MIND: Who is this ceremony for?

  • The living or the dead? Or both? Who does what? And what is the 'vibe' I want?
  • What is the purpose of this service? Do I even want one?
  • Can funerals be fun? Or at least uplifting?
  • Use of music, poetry, or inspirational readings
  • Guest books, programs and photos.
  • Breaking taboos and doing it YOUR way...or the traditional way?

SOUL: What makes meaning?

  • What are the components of a funeral or memorial?
  • What role do stories play?
  • What makes a eulogy memorable?
  • How does spirituality or religion influence the ceremony?
  • The importance of laughter and tears: How emoting heals the heart

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
