What is A Sacred Moment?

Life is full of sacred moments. In our fast-paced lives, we often miss them - and usually at a time when we most need to find meaning. During a loss, family and friends may have difficulty creating a meaningful way to say goodbye and honor their loved one's death. Yet families commonly encounter a deeper healing when they are engaged in the funeral experience.

This is why Char Barrett, founder of A Sacred Moment, created services to support and educate families, friends, caregivers and communities about significant life transitions. A Sacred Moment provides:

Home Funeral Vigils - also known as at-home funerals, in-home funerals, family-directed home funerals, home-based funerals, or wakes. A loved one's body remains at home (or is brought back home) following death for a period of time prior to burial or cremation.

Green Burials - also known as natural burials, eco-friendly burials, and earth-friendly funerals. A green burial simply involves an unembalmed body, a biodegradable container, and a vaultless grave.

Life Celebrations - also known as a memorial service, celebration of life, living memorial, funeral, or graveside service. A life celebration is a service that honors and reflects the character, personality, and history of a life well lived.

Educational Workshops & Trainings - we offer various educational workshops, including three-hour introduction, one-day general overview, or three-day intensive home funeral and green burial training.

Keynote Speaking & Presentations - education and awareness are key to providing quality end-of-life choices for families. A Sacred Moment offers fee-based and pro bono keynote speaking and presentations for a variety of organizations.

Other funeral related services- we offer alternative approaches to funerals that fit your lifestyle. We also provide women-supporting-women services and support for families experiencing the loss of a pet, including memorial services.
