Event description

Description

The Holistic Death Care Gathering is a series of community events bringing folks together that are interested in alternative approaches to death, dying and grief. The goal of these Gatherings is to nurture a community of care and to provide a local platform to share knowledge, resources and learning opportunities. Hosted by Shauna Janz, each meeting will be an opportunity to connect with others and to learn from a speaker on a particular aspect of holistic death care.

We welcome Don Morris M.Ed, to speak at this inaugural first Gathering. He will be sharing his own journey working in the field of deathcare, including spiritual and ritual aspects, and offering an introduction to facilitating home funeral ceremonies, including some of the legalities that surround it.

About Don:

Don Morris, M.Ed is committed to reclaiming family and community-centered death care. After a successful career as a funeral director and cemeterian, in 2010 he brought Green Burial Council to Canada prompted by a concern for the environment and its nexus with wasteful/ harmful funeral industry practices. In 2012, he and his wife Elizabeth opened Canada's first Death Cafe. His lifelong interest in death and dying also led to consulting to the Canadian Integrative Network for Death Education and Alternaitves and to co-creating Community Deathcare Canada, a non-profit supporting an inclusive community of practice. Currently he offers Home Funeral Practicum trainings to teach others the necessary legal, practical and holistic knowledge and skills for bringing death and dying into the home.
