Webinars

We host regular educational events that are open to everyone that would like to attend, where we and guests share information that can be helpful to those that are needing to or are thinking about planning a funeral, or indeed those that want to learn about becoming a funeral director or already work in a funeral care related profession.  We used to host these events face-to-face but the online webinars have made the sessions even more accessible, to as many people as possible.

Our webinars are held at 11am on the second Friday of the month and last for approximately one hour. They are hosted via Zoom and you can find the links to them below.  Participants are encouraged to ask questions, engage with the material and speak openly and honestly about funerals, death and dying.  However, if you prefer you can just listen and absorb without speaking or even turning your camera or microphone on at all.

We believe that with the right information and support people can create funerals that are helpful and have a positive effect on long-term well-being.  The more we know about what is possible, the more likely we are to be able to make choices that are right for us.  Please get in touch if you would like to find out how to attend, have a question or would like to be guest speaker in our 2021 webinar series.

Exploring Humanist Pastoral Care – April 8th 2022 11am

Joanna Mutlow, Funeral Celebrant and NHS Pastoral Care Practitioner, accredited by Humanists UK 

Jo combines the work of a funeral celebrant with that of ‘chaplain’ in the NHS, underpinned by her Humanist beliefs.  In this Webinar she will explore the supportive ways in which we can respond to people at times of crisis and grief, in a context of an  increasingly secular society.

She will draw on her recent book Being There: Responses in Humanist Pastoral Care (published 2021 by Humanists UK) which offers examples and case studies of the sorts of responses that a Humanist gives when a person shares their conflicts, grief, loneliness or indeed existential crisis.

At a time when a lot of celebrants will label their funeral ceremony as ‘humanist’, Jo will also explore how a ‘Humanist with a capital H’ ceremony might differentiate itself, and how her beliefs and pastoral care role underpin her celebrancy practice. Please bring opinions and questions.

Working with the body in times of grief? – May 13th 2022 11am

Dave Hill PhD, M(Chiro), Chiropractor and Jane Wood BSc (hons) Acupuncture

We have probably all noticed in times of great stress that we hold increased amounts of tension in our body.  Bereavement and loss are some of the most stressful life events that we go through and sometimes it leaves a legacy in how we hold tension in our body.  At the same time, grief can affect the function of the body, which can have a knock-on effect on our health.

By allowing tissues to release this tension and improving the function of the body you can see a transformation in yourself and your life.  In this webinar, Jane and Dave talk about the ways that chiropractic and acupuncture could help and give practical healthcare tips that we can all try at home.
