Old Traditions, New Ways: Bringing After-Death Care Back Home

02/22/2014 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Death is a normal and natural family experience, a transition we all face.  In the past families and the community took care of all the arrangements. A home funeral is a dignified and loving alternative to current funeral practices. It allows the family to have more control, with meaningful involvement in caring for their own.

Basic, hands-on skills will be covered in this 3 hour workshop to give one the confidence and courage to create a meaningful experience when death occurs.

Join us to learn:

  • What is a home funeral?
  • Legal rights in Texas
  • Why embalming is not required
  • What paperwork do I need?
  • What do I do when someone dies?
  • Is this a good fit for my family?
  • How can friends, family and community be involved?
  • What is green burial?
  • And more…
