Some of the topics covered in the workshop as we acknowledge ‘the importance of saying goodbye’ are as follows: • Eco friendly awareness, looking at woodland burial

• Ease the stress for loved ones by planning your own funeral

• Ceremonies that echo the essence of the individual

• Whether to choose cremation or burial: the facts

• DIY funerals

• Ways to remember: memorials that are different

• Living wills

• Leave the workshop with information and ideas that enable you to write a letter of your final wishes.

Kathy says: “I found Jean’s workshop totally inspirational.” Laura says: “How I wish I had known about all the choices available to me when my husband died.”
Martin says: “I used to dread the idea of dying but having thought about and planned my own funeral I feel far more at ease with the inevitable.”
Sophie and Jack say: “When our baby died Jean helped us arrange his funeral. The ideas she gave us and the suggestions she made couldn’t change the grim situation but helped to soften the sharp edges and lighten our load.”
Mary says: “With no immediate family I have had to take responsibility for my own life and now my death. Having planned my funeral I feel a burden has been lifted, freeing me to live my final years to the full.”

Jean Francis runs workshops giving guidance in planning ‘Celebrations of Life’ whether funerals or memorial ceremonies, based on her book ‘Time to Go.’ Jean also helps with funeral planning at ARKA Original Funerals in Brighton, which specialises in funerals that honour our precious planet.
