This episode introduces Karen van Vuuren, co-founder of Colorado’s first independent, holistic funeral home. The Natural Funeral helps families to make choices that are in harmony with their values, bringing healing and re-connection to the cycle of life. With the awareness that many current death-care practices are harmful to the environment, their mission is to minimize the impact of our final footprints. They provide natural, sustainable funeral options such as a green burial or cremation, Reverent Body Care, and intentional memorial services. Karen’s non-profit, “Natural Transitions” further educates through online publications, conferences, grief groups and other inspirational events. She is the Director of two documentaries: “Dying Wish” and “Go in Peace” that bring awareness to the challenges of dying with dignity in our modern world. Listen in on a discussion on the importance and the beauty of honoring death in a meaningful and sustainable way.
