Day with Your Dead

on Whidbey Island

this Saturday, Nov 1st.

Hope we get to see you there!


You have made your way here because you want to do it your own way.

The Emerge Foundation is a safe and empowering place to explore a peaceful transition and a good death. More and more of us want less invasive practices with our loved ones and for ourselves at the end of our lives and afterwards.

I am a Seattle-area funeral celebrant and home funeral guide. I can help you consider a green burial, family-directed funeral, home vigil, no embalming or perhaps no extraordinary life-prolonging measures.

You may identify as ‘spiritual but not religious’. As a funeral celebrant, I can help create powerful ritual and celebration for families with multiple cultural and religious beliefs – all to take you, your family and friends through an end-of-life time with full intention.

If you are reading this, this may be a crazy time for you.  If traveled with gentle wisdom, heart and conscious choice, this chaotic time will ultimately become a profound and poignant life moment that, with my support and services, will be healing, meaningful and beautiful.

I invite you to contact me. Please expect a very prompt reply.

From my heart to yours,

Kateyanne Unullisi
