Feministry Celebrant Training

Funerals and End of Life


I am passionate about the need for openness and transparency in all aspects of death and death planning, for everyone involved. Every individual deserves a final tribute which not only reflects their own unique personality and approach to life, but that also honours and celebrates the unique gifts they brought to the world, and the legacy they leave behind. In this Module, you will learn to create and carry out a beautifully unique funeral ceremony, which reflects the character, personality and beliefs of the deceased.
