Home Funeral Practicum

A home funeral provides intimate and sacred care to a deceased in the time before burial or cremation. Come reclaim what our ancestors knew about death care in our communities and how to support each other on this journey. It's about caring for our own. You'll practice moving, washing, shrouding, casketing and vigiling models in sacred space. Understand legalities, logistics, health concerns and death-doula ethics. Beautiful, life affirming work. 

This two-day, in-depth, practical, role-play workshop at Tatamagouche Centre shares valuable experience and essential knowledge. It hones your existing ‘human skills’ to legally and tenderly care for another at death with or without a funeral director.
