Guest Presenter on a personal family-directed home funeral – to be announced


One of our students made this movie of Level 1 and 2 training. We hope to be able to meet in person again soon. For now, we are online.


Level 3 includes a certificate of completion for our death midwifery and home funeral guidance program.

For local graduates, ask about Internship options. Jerrigrace is usually available by telephone to assist any graduates with a home funeral.

It was an honor to receive your sharing and teaching us about your work, your calling to it, and of yourself. For myself, I think most of all I appreciate your realness and being just plain comfortable with not only this work, but your place in it all. Thank you for that. The sense of ease you and Mark model is perhaps the best lesson of them all. With gratitude to you both — Sheila
