A good funeral
A funeral should be ANYTHING you need it to be. That may mean something as uncomplicated as sharing memories and a candle for your loved one over a family dinner. It is any memorial that you deem appropriate for your needs. Studies have shown that participating in even a very simple ritual can be so beneficial in letting go, by powerfully rebalancing the emotional energy after a death.
A 'funeral' is not a legal requirement in Australia, but reflecting on and celebrating a loved one's life is a significant step along the path to healthy grieving and closure.
A good funeral or memorial service empowers participants in four ways:
to grieve the life that was lived, and
to begin the process of transforming your relationship with the person who has died.
A funeral ceremony should reflect on the changing nature of our relationship to the deceased. When someone we love dies, our relationship is not lost, but changed.
How we work
We thoroughly make sure you are aware of all of your choices, and we do not make assumptions as to what you might need. We encourage you to explore options that fulfil your needs rather than doing what you might feel is expected. We are your safe hands, and your guide.
We come to your home or location, listen to what you need us to do, and assume responsibility for making sure everything is done to provide you with what you want. We will want to know as much about the person who has died as you can tell us.
We will create an event to honour your loved one in the way that is most healing to you, and together we will consider the invaluable objectives of the traditional funeral ceremony -as both a rite of separation and of re-integration. The purpose of this ceremony is to build a foundation from which your lives may continue without your loved ones presence. We support you throughout, and we will be with you when you loved one is finally laid to rest.
Our Home Funeral pricing is completely transparent and simple. You just choose the elements that you need to create the type of farewell that you want, or if you prefer an all-in price, we have the option of a home funeral package or a direct cremation with blessing ritual.
When you ring us, your phone call will be answered directly by Mimi or Greg. It is an honour to serve your needs.
