Death; it’s life’s only certainty.
There is so much love and beauty to hold in death – yes there is the pain of feeling the loss of that person in our life but there is also the feeing of unconditional love, forgiveness and gratitude for having known or been part of that person’s life and all you have shared together.
Part of the process of healing from the death of a loved one is to acknowledge and feel your grief. Grief affects each of us differently and there is no right way, wrong way or appropriate timescale to process it, deal with it and live with it.
It will come to us all – loss, grief and eventually, we will face our own mortality. Time is finite and life is lost. Grief doesn’t completely heal the loss felt, but it does shift into a new way of living and continuing on.
We will all step on that rainbow one day, is it goodbye, or goodbye for now? For relationships and friendships don’t end with a last breath, but evolve to carry on in memory and love. No-one really dies until the last person says their name for the last time.
::: Funeral Service :::
A beautiful and sacred ceremony to say farewell to your loved one in celebration of their life.
This is a non-denominational funeral ceremony to honour the deceased. The service can include ceremonies of forgiveness, gratitude, generosity and celebration, as well as stories and ancedotes, readings and blessings as is wished. It may be as spiritual or not as is fitting for the deceased person and their family.
Each funeral service is created specifically to the person being remembered in a respectful manner
Funeral Service £250.
::: Living Funeral :::
A funeral ceremony can also take place whilst one is alive, as a way of gaining awareness of death and may aid in the healing of any trauma or grievances. I have experienced my own funeral and can confirm it to be an enormously moving experience.
This is a beautiful ceremony to have if you (as the deceased-to-be) wish to say your own farewells to your loved ones, sharing any thoughts, messages or gifts with them before you cross over. Alternatively, it may be used as an opportunity for loved ones to share and express their love, wishes and final thoughts with you.
This ceremony may be held in your home, garden or venue of choice (with land/building owner’s permission).
Living Funeral Service £200 incl £50 non-refundable deposit.
::: Memorial Ceremony/Circle :::
Here we honour and celebrate the deceased and all that they brought to their time earth side. There is no timeframe for when a memorial ceremony may be conducted and therefore can follow the funeral service or on a particular and meaningful anniversary. The scattering of ashes, tree planting, memorial bench, head stone placement, if applicable, may be included in this ceremony.
Remembrance Ceremony £125 incl £50 non-refundable deposit.
