BoiseIONS Sept 2014 presentation: Holistic Death care

At the September 28th meeting,  Sherri Rudai, President, Funeral Consumers’ Alliance of Idaho and Susan Randall, Death Midwife/Holistic Death Care and member of the Board of the Funeral Consumers’ Alliance of Idaho will conduct a workshop on Holistic Death Care and initiate a conversation regarding legal choices and options in death care.

Sherri will help us understand that although death is something we all have in common, it is one of the topics that most of us can barely talk about.  She will demonstrate how by sharing our experiences about death and the caring for our loved ones at the end of life, we convey our humanity.

Susan realized at an early age that meaningful ritual was important for honoring the dead, and she learned that the absence of a loved one’s body delays the grieving process. As an adult, after viewing a friend’s body at the funeral home, she saw the importance of taking charge of the funeral process. These experiences have led Susan to educate folks about their legal choices and options in death care as well as in celebrating this transition.
