Green burial and home funeral conference coming up

Natural Transitions is sponsoring a conference on Green Burial and Home Funerals. Two topics of great interest to me. I wish I could attend. The event begins this Saturday, October 3, 2009 in Boulder, Colorado and is called Ethics and Ecology.

Natural Transitions is a home funeral support organization with “guides” — people who are educated about how to prepare and execute a home funeral.  Lately, we’ve taken to calling them “home funeral specialists”.  Some people call them  “Death Midwives” or “Death Doulas” but that gives the idea that they work with the dying to help them pass away or something.  Home funeral specialists are exactly that, people who have gained some special knowledge on how to do a home funeral.  I think they play an important role for those families that want to have an “expert” around. Other families will feel comfortable educating themselves and not using a specialist to help out.  Hey, it’s all about choices. Let people know what their options are and let them decide what’s best for their situation.
