A Celebration of Life ceremony can be a genuinely different approach to saying goodbye to loved ones. It’s the chance to remember them in full living colour. In a way that honours their life, their passions, and all the things that made them unique.
At the heart of a Celebration of Life is your loved one’s life story. Their true story. Specific and real snapshots of their life that allow people to settle in, smile, laugh, shed a few tears.
A real Celebration of Life is a true reflection of the essence of your loved one. It’s a combination of style and substance…the kind of event that s/he would have loved to attend. A heartfelt alternative to the “insert-name-here” scripts that have become standard fare at so many memorial services. And the process of creating the ceremony can be a huge part of the “saying farewell” process that we seem to have lost over the past decades can be deeply meaningful for you and your loved ones.
My radius of delivery is small and I believe in the power of ceremony. So I set aside an hour each week (Sunday 9:30 – 10:30 AM Pacific time) to answer your questions and give feedback. No sales pitch, simply and honest and true exchange of ideas that you won’t likely find elsewhere. We meet via conference call or Skype. If you would like to sit in on the next session, contact me here.
