A memorial that uplifts, connects and offers opportunities for healing to begin.
Sweetgrass works with you to co-design a ceremony that features meaningful music, prose, poetry, rituals and even humor, based on your loved one's life story. The event may involve an intimate and quiet gathering of close family to scatter cremains. It may involve an all night vigil with the deceased. It may involve a large assembly of guests to memorialize a life in a celebratory way. In any case, Sweetgrass guides the process with graceful clarity and respect.
The ways we handle and honor death are very individual. Spiritual practices may be present or absent. Among varied circumstances and belief systems, Sweetgrass places your values and traditions at the center of the experience.
When you plan for any kind of memorial service, your living room or kitchen table is where we meet to discuss the ceremony. You and your family or friends take the discussion at your own pace. Sharing photos and memorabilia in a home environment helps me prepare a vivid 'soul sketch' about your loved one.
And ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
- Kahlil Gibran
