New course, fully online with LIVE virtual office hours begins October 18, 2021!
I'm thrilled to offer this completely revamped training, in collaboration with Brian Hayden and Redesigning the End. Individual modules include reading, viewing, writing exercises, and other exciting activities to prepare you to guide others in caring for their own dead at home. Home funeral, fully legal in all 50 states, is a natural way to continue loving death care in the home, with no need for the body to go to a funeral home. Ideal for those who have been in hospice care and who embrace a natural approach that is environmentally friendly.
I have been teaching about natural death care since 2009 and have assisted over 50 families having a home funeral. Ideal for end-of-life doulas, funeral professionals, spiritual care providers, and hospice workers, the curriculum includes history of US funeral practices, legal considerations, state-by-state laws, benefits of home care, how to care for the body, supplies, special circumstances, creating a ceremony or gathering, anatomical donation and much more. Students are fully prepared to take the National Home Funeral Alliance (NHFA) Proficiency Exam and earn their Badge.
