What students are saying...

"This training was such an education in my ongoing exploration of death, much more than I expected. I really enjoyed the balance of practical and spiritual information and know I have a new set of tools for the time when I am called upon to assist in a loved one's transition."   B. Rinehart
"Olivia personifies the sense of sacred through and through. Her content touches the heart and her information hits the spot of what we need to know personally legally and professionally in this business. Highly recommended."  Shelley W.
"I feel grateful to have been given so much vital information. I wish I had known these things when people in my life have died. I would have done things very differently."       - Jackie Cole -
"I learned so much more in this workshop than 14 years in the conventional funeral industry. That is just what it was...industry. This is sacred work"
Josette Astaria Sheets
