Ritual and Remembrance

Saturday February 22nd, 2014  1 – 2:30pm

Celebrant Lisa Hartley and artist Shannon Browne present a workshop offering an imaginative, playful and thoughtful approach to creating a Celebration of Life.                                                             
Contact Lisa                                                     

This workshop looks at simple things we can do to infuse a deeper sense of the person     you have lost, into the Ceremony at the end of their life.
We consider what is typically done at a memorial, what’s been done historically and how to help you tap into more personal rituals that bring meaning to a Celebration of life.
An intentionally created Ceremony reflects the person who has died and helps those remaining, grieve.

Cost: $25.00
