Funeral Rituals in Today’s World
Since the dawn of humanity, we’ve buried our dead. Funerals date back to the very roots of our civilization. Regardless of culture or belief, death has always held an important place in our ceremonies and celebrations.
In times gone by, rites of passage, such as baptisms, weddings and funerals, were managed by religious institutions. In today’s day and age, many people decide to celebrate these same moments in their own way. And it is up to us to create our own milestones for these significant life events.
Funerals are a way of paying tribute to someone we have lost by celebrating the person they were in life. Funerals should represent their values, and above all else, comfort the people who have been left behind. In fact, funerals are an important step in the grieving process. That’s why your loved ones’ opinions should be taken into consideration when planning your funeral.
The funeral ceremony is the first step to accepting separation. However, it is not where the grieving process ends. More than ever, memories play an important role in rituals surrounding death. The final resting place is therefore just as important as the ceremony itself for those who are grieving. By choosing a significant and inspiring location, we can ensure that the duty of remembrance never fades away.
It is of the utmost importance that family and friends be able to come together to visit the deceased’s final resting place. This is the vision behind our memorial gardens. Welcoming and inclusive, our gardens provide those mourning with a place to reflect, while appreciating the tranquility and peace of mind nature can bring.
