New Certified Celebrant Training scheduled--attention Canadians!

We are offering a funeral Celebrant training for Canadian participants June 1-3 on Zoom. Since we have several in-person trainings scheduled in the states, we wanted to create an opportunity for our northern neighbors to have another chance at training.

So, Canadians have first choice and have a deadline of May 17th to sign up. We are also taking wait list names for people in the states who wish to attend and will fill after the deadline closes.

Thank a Funeral Director

I am a funeral director. If you had told my 25-year-old self who was beginning a career as a determined and dedicated special education teacher that 40 years later I would be typing that sentence, I would have laughed in your face. And, yes, I’m that old.

And now this. Funerals in the time of Covid 19. So, a hard and strange social practice has just become even more challenging. We can’t gather. We can’t hug. We can’t hold each other’s hands. There are a lot of can’ts being presented right now. And rather than just dealing with the deaths o...

Throughout history, society has marked moments in time when life changed suddenly and completely. Those dates are seared into our memories and we look back to “before” and “after”, what we lost and, perhaps, what we gained.

To respond to the current need to adapt our funeral services to the unprecedented time and to embrace virtual services or small group experiences, InSight and our Celebrant community have put together a resource book, Ceremonies to Celebrate from Afar: A Resource for Challenging Times. It includes ideas, suggestions, ceremonies, opening and closings, and graveside services.

We put this together with the hope it will provide guidance and assistance for funeral professionals as they serve their families.

If you are involved in helping families navigate planning a funeral in this challenging time, email InSight for your copy of this new resource at no cost.

Last year I took my grandsons to Orlando. Because that’s the kind of GiGi I am. One must make life-altering choices when you head to this magical city—where do we spend our time? Disney or Universal? How many days at each? Do we stay on property? Which property? It takes months to navigate all t...

We just wanted to share this grieving widow's wonderful testimony to the healing power of the Continuing Care Series and to say thank you to Doug and everyone at In-Sight for helping us bring healing to our client families. "Dear Liz, Bob, Kirk and All, I never thought this whole grieving process would be so difficult! I want to thank you for all the wonderful advise you've given me. I remember, "do not make any major decisions for 6 months!" My mind has certainly created some -- but no action taken yet. I think the wonderful booklets by Doug Manning help me so much. I've experienced all the scenarios he mentions and am glad to learn it's okay to feel those emotions! Thank you for sending those and I am looking forward to the next one. Once of my favorite quotes he mentions is: "Tears are memories in motion!" Just want to thank you again and again for always being there and for the emotional support you share! Fondly, Jane"
