Sacred Crossings is a Los Angeles-based company offering education, support and guidance for conscious dying and home funerals.
Sacred Crossing Guides assist families with end-of-life planning; death midwifery; creating a vigil and funeral at home and cremation or burial arrangements.
Our education institute offers workshops and classes and a certificate program in The Art of Death Midwifery. Students are both professional and non-professional end-of-life caregivers and those wishing to further their spiritual growth by exploring the dying process. Graduates of the death midwifery program are eligible to serve as Sacred Crossing Guides.
The Sacred Crossings Funeral Home (coming soon!) will offer a full range of services including cremation, burial, funerals and memorials.
