Home Funeral & Funeral Celebrant

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
