Online Course: Humanist Memorials


Birth, marriage, death. Celebrants are asked to assist at life’s big transitions. Celebrating a child or a marriage tend to be light, happy occasions, despite the anxieties and stresses of planning. The death of a loved one, however, generates anxiety and stress without the compensatory lightness. Ideally, the celebrant brings calm to the storm. All it takes is a little planning and a lot of empathy.

This course introduces Humanist Celebrants to the process of working with families in order to plan memorial services from a Humanist perspective.
