Meet the Founder

Rev. Olivia Bareham

Olivia is a certified Death Midwife, Home Funeral Guide, Funeral Celebrant, founder of the Sacred Crossings Institute and co-founder of the Sacred Crossings Funeral Home. Learn more about her story at The Death Midwife…

“To die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly. Death of one’s own free choice, death at the proper time, with a clear head and with joyfulness, consummated in the midst of children and witnesses: so that an actual leave-taking is possible while he who is leaving is still there.”

– Friedrich Nietzsche
