Knowledge Lights the Way

Working with a shroud - Home Funeral Workshop

Recognizing that education and training lies at the heart of A Sacred Moment’s support of home funerals and green burials, our long-term goal is to establish an educational institute as part of our work and mission.

Currently, we offer an annual one-day workshop at Bastyr University, usually in the spring. This is a great introductory training and can provide information and networking opportunities for you to begin your exploration of home funeral and green burial work.

If there is enough interest, and we are available, a family or community can request that we create a workshop or training geared specifically to their needs. This can be a half-day, full–day, or weekend event. A family or community member organizes, promotes the event and makes it happen. We provide the information and hands-on training.

We can also set up a webinar and do a more long-distance training for those who are not local, or who cannot gather in one place for a workshop. (See Education & Trainings/Webinars.) Stay tuned for future offerings as training opportunities tend to emerge throughout the year. (See About Us/Events and Calendar.)

We also recommend visiting the websites of the National Home Funeral Alliance and the Green Burial Council for further educational/workshop/training opportunities.
