Transition by Design: Planning an Inspired & Intentional Funeral – 5.5 CE Credits

with Amy Cunningham

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

A One-Day Workshop
Sunday, April 18, 2021, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm ET

Planning for your own death and getting acquainted with what is both traditional and newly possible in today’s end-of-life rituals, is a spiritual practice that can enable you to face your own mortality with serenity and courage. Sadly, people who postpone funeral discussions are too frequently confronted with decisions involving thousands of dollars as they hold tissues in their hands. And any funeral service today faces additional challenges posed by the novel coronavirus, not least of which is paying for funeral service itself in hard times. So how can families today find greater solace, healing and empowerment?


Join funeral director Amy Cunningham in a day-long discussion about changes within American funeral service. We’ll cover how to plan an earth-friendly funeral with hands-on involvement, a more meaningful cremation, or a memorial service on Zoom.

We’ll also discuss new ways to honor and remember our loved ones involving altars, music, flowers, dance and meditation.

A farewell to a loved one today might entail a sequence of healing experiences instead of just one event.

We’ll review every conceivable option and discuss:

  • green cemeteries near New York City
  • cremation pros and cons
  • biodegradable casket decorating
  • blended-faith/alternative ceremonies and more.

This workshop can be taken individually or as part of the Integrative Thanatology Certificate Training | An Art of Dying Education Program.
