We’ll start by talking about the legal documents everyone should have in place, then cover planning ahead, writing things down, and having a conversation with the family about those plans. That will lead to a Q & A guided by your questions. We can talk about funeral options, home funerals, green cemeteries, alkaline hydrolysis, family burying grounds, scattering ashes, and paperwork-whatever you want to know. We’ll share stories. I’ll bet that you’ll even laugh sometimes!

Students are required to complete a workbook or an online course to obtain a voucher, both of which complement the student manual.
