And for those seeking information for educational purposes or with an imminent need in mind, here's a primer: There are basically three choices for after-death care:
Professional mortuary services
Family and community-assisted care
An integration of both
The integrative model will often make the most sense. Enlisting the help of a mortuary service will be a great comfort to those who want natural burial but are not prepared to carry out home land burials without assistance. For those who are prepared to go that DIY route, as a trained home funeral and natural burial guide, I can support you through the journey.
As a public speaker, I enjoy the opportunity to prepare and present eulogies for my end-of-life clients. A eulogy and remembrance that pays worthy tribute to their life essence, their legacy, and their contributions to human existence can be great comfort. Working alongside clients' clergy or other spiritual mentors, I have found that a personal eulogy, fleshed out over our time together, can help bring personal closure to the bereaved.
