NHFA November 2023 Webinar

Register to receive a recording of our webinar from Tuesday, November 21st at 8pm ET | 5pm PT for Secular Ceremonies, Universal Rituals, & Home Funerals with Megan Sheldon, the co-founder of Be Ceremonial!

In this webinar, we will explore what makes a ritual meaningful and how we can structure a ceremony that helps us move through a time of transition or moment of change. With a focus on end-of-life experiences, we will share ritual ideas for living funerals, sitting vigil, home funerals, celebrations of life and death anniversaries. We will also discuss the role of ritual in our own self-care, including how we acknowledge the grief we carry and the other emotions that can often surround death and dying. You will leave feeling more confident to create your own rituals and ceremonies, for yourself and for others.

Register to attend this event live, or receive the recording made available afterward (within two weeks of the event) to all registrants. There is a sliding scale to attend, starting at $10.


Megan Sheldon is the co-founder of Be Ceremonial, a guided ritual app that empowers you to create your own daily rituals and lifecycle ceremonies. Megan is also a cultural mythologist, humanist celebrant, and end-of-life doula in North Vancouver, BC. 

Megan designed this app with her husband Johan after their own experiences of loss. They were searching for secular rituals to support their grief journey and decided to share all of the knowledge and wisdom they've gathered over the past decade. Be Ceremonial focuses on rituals and ceremonies that surround grief, loss and the end-of-life, including home funerals.
