End of Life Ceremonies
End of Living Celebrations - Remembrance/Memorial Ceremonies
Honouring Life's End
The End of Life is a challenging time that can be both disturbing and beautiful.
We feel the impending or actual loss acutely. We want to honour the life that has been lived respectfully and in a "real" way. Every life has had its proud and dark moments that we remember at the end. It is a time of strong feelings when love, gratitude, sadness, anger and forgiveness may all be expressed. It is a time for gathering to support each other in grieving.
A ceremony is a meaningful and effective way to commemorate a life that will soon end or has already ended, and help us deal with the loss.
