hf pictureCaring for our loved ones during their dying time is not easy…but it is incredibly gratifying.

While being sad, it is also a profound and transformative experience.

Caring for our dead is a privilege.

A home funeral is a gift to ourselves, our communities and to our loved ones.

A home funeral happens when a loved one is cared for at home or in a sacred space after death. This gives family and friends time to prepare the body, file legal paperwork, gather and grieve in the comfort of their own home and at their own pace.
