Lost Rites: Ceremony & Ritual for Death & Dying

The first in a series entitled Lost Rites, this little gem of a book is a guide to the why and the how of ceremony within the context of death and dying. Within its pages we are led through the conventional form of a modern funeral from a celebrant’s perspective before that limited formulaic approach is then unpacked.

The re-wilding of ceremony is about a return to circles within communities with the ceremonialist facilitating rather than reading a script from a pulpit. This book is a resource for existing celebrants wishing to deepen and refresh their work, prospective celebrants wishing to learn and to anyone who feels called to a ceremonial life filled with meaning. This text will support anyone who wishes to be a “servant of ceremony” whether that is publicly or for their own personal growth.
