Green Burial, Home Funeral & Funeral Celebrant – teacher, guide, consultant

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 the end of our lives and afterwards.

I help guide and empower people to envision and implement what is possible when a life is ending. What a handcrafted funeral and memorial can be. Green burial. Home funerals. After death care of someone you love. People want a new way, and I can help build bridges between families and funeral homes.

You may identify as ‘spiritual but not religious.’ As a funeral celebrant, I work with 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 can be healing, meaningful and beautiful.

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