Create Meaningful Funeral Ceremonies With Heart and Soul

Many mourners suffer from “secret disappointment” with the funeral. So said agony aunt Claire Rayner in the foreword to our book “We Need To Talk About The Funeral”. When a funeral lacks a sense of the sacred and does not reflect the life, value and beliefs of the person who has died it leaves a hollow feeling. It needs to bring the mourners to some sense of completion.

A good funeral has both ‘heart’, reflecting the love for the person who has died and their true nature, and ‘soul’, having a sense of the deeper nature of things, call it spiritual, sacred, immanent.

When we train funeral celebrants (as we have for the last 12 years), slowly, giving time to understand what funerals are about, how they take the mourners on a journey, a rite of passage, we enable them to create funeral ceremonies with heart and soul. These are deeply satisfying and meaningful.

Come with us on this journey to being an excellent funeral celebrant, and create for yourself one of the most fulfilling and meaningful careers possible.
