Living Funeral Ceremony

This ceremony, intended for individuals not in the end-of-life space, is a 2-to-3 hour long observance that focuses a person's attention on their own mortality. While reflecting on their memorial, participants are asked to write their last words and are lead through a death visualization. It is a profound journey which provides an uncommon perspective that can be life-changing.
