We're going to try an online gathering; so cozy up in a favourite chair: make yourself a hot cup of whatever comforts you, add a plate of cookies or some leftover holiday sweets and get ready to log on for our first ever Virtual Death Cafe.

    Sign up Here.


    What's in the works for 2020

    • We will be holding virtual death cafes ( over the cold winter months when no one wants to leave the comfort of their homes) via Zoom which is a free meet up space online. Think you might be interested?  It’s easy to join a Zoom meeting.  You can turn your camera on or off as you like. Let us know if this might interest you.  
    • A workshop for those interested in learning how to build a simple eco-friendly coffin.  
    • Workshop on how to make your own burial shroud and carrier.
    • When Someone We Love is Dying:  A workshop on what we, as family and friends, can and cannot do. The legalities and the possibilities.
    • Natural Burial.  A public presentation on what it is, what it isn’t and what our options are.
    • We are talking about an All Souls Celebration for next November. For inspiration, see the Vancouver Cemetery’s site for their All Souls Celebration that’s been happening for 15 years.
    • We have just formed our second non-profit society; Cariboo Community Natural Burial Association with a strong seven-member board of directors. Onward and upward.

    Featured Resource for November 2019

    National Home Funeral Alliance


    The mission of the NHFA is to educate and empower families and communities to care for their own dead.

    The NHFA is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer organization that is the leading body of home after-death care support and education in the US. Created in 2010, our members come from all 50 states, five provinces, and seven countries. Many of us are home funeral guides who also identify as licensed funeral directors, ordained ministers, educators, bodyworkers, licensed social workers, registered nurses, therapists and counselors, directors of nonprofits, attorneys and physicians. Many simply want to support the movement from institutionalized care back to family care of our own dead.
