About Sacred Earth Funerals

A RETURN TO HOLISTIC DEATH CARE TRADITIONS

Sacred Earth was created as a localised alternative to commercialism in the funeral industry and believes providing a very personal and unique end of life practise is a profound way to honour the deceased and a powerful comfort to family that remains. We return to the old wisdom traditions our communities once accessed in dealing with our dead and dying. As such we offer a complete range of end of life services, including any type of funeral, home vigils and wakes, end of life planning and profound emotional, spiritual and practical support for the dying. 

For a complete list of services, please see                        

 

OUR PURPOSE - OUR COMMUNITY

We emphasise family led practises, environmental responsibility and freedom to grieve, celebrate and honour, in which ever way suits us best. Sacred Earth Holistic Funerals is committed to bearing witness to life, which includes the final and most profound rite of passage at death. We are a part of our courageous community forging the compassion to companion the dying, and provide the necessary emotional, practical and spiritual support through resource and education.  We promote the willingness to embrace the inevitability of our own deaths, in order for our lives to become deeply purposeful, joyful and as meaningful as they can be. 

May we grow to accept the things we cannot change, to face change and fear together, and to support our community to find the wings to fly, embracing the whole of our human journey.

 

Blessings on all.

About Mimi

 

Mimi began her journey into death awareness at a young age, losing key family members to death. Eventually realising that the overwhelming grief she experienced was only able to be dealt with by leaning in to the experience of loss in death, she undertook to find a way to befriend death, and began formal training in Accompanying the Dying as a young adult in Greenwich Hospital in Sydney over 25 years ago. 

 

She has deep empathy for people touched by loss and is committed to returning death to the Sacred by focusing on the emotional and spiritual needs of the dying and providing a return to traditional after death care and funerary practises.

 

Mimi believes ceremony should provide a personalised avenue to grieve, honour and celebrate the lives of those that have died. But also importantly, to provide meaning and re-integration for the bereaved, in a world that remains after loss.
