The Emerge Foundation helps you with what is needed at the end of life. We all want and deserve as much control as possible, so that this life ends well, with a good death.

The Emerge Foundation promotes a good death for the dying and the people who care for them by empowering people to do it their own way. Using ceremony and guidance, Kateyanne aims to help transform the journey into one that heals. The Emerge Foundation donates a percentage of all proceeds to help offset costs of family-directed funerals for children.

Transition Journey Guide Services

Discover guideposts and safe passages as you sort out the details of an impending death. We work together on a Transition Journey to create structure and support that is lacking in our modern society, and is based on the values and beliefs of the family. It often includes help and consultation for a family-directed home funeral, especially in the case of children.

Home Funeral Consulting Services

Keep your loved one at home after death for one to three days. It’s natural, it’s low cost, and it’s legal. I will help you learn how you can return to traditional death practices and bring connection, healing and meaning into your community group by holding a family-directed funeral in the home.
