“Alternatives to Traditional Embalming and Burials” – Online – Tuesday, February 27, 2024 (2 pm – 3:30 pm central time)
Description: This program will provide information about traditional post-death options as well as more eco-friendly alternatives. We will examine earth-first values and ways to honor these values after we die such as liquid cremation, human composting, and more.
Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to:
∙ Understand the difference between traditional and eco-friendly post-death options.
∙ Identify non-traditional ways to dispose of our bodies after we die.
∙ Recognize the ways we honor Earth-first values during life and beyond.
∙ Recognize how death doulas, therapists, and others can support clients when they make choices about their burials, cremations, etc., or need help communicating these choices to loved ones.
The link will be sent out before the session begins. This is available for 1.5 CEUs through the Continuing Education Institute of Illinois. I’d also welcome caregivers, patients, and curious participants. Please join us! Each session also includes an “Ask a Doula” Q&A at the end where I’ll answer all your questions.
