Presentation with Dr. Jean Hera, BSW (Hons), PhD, PGDipSSS (Distinction. Community health worker/manager Palmerston North Women's Health Collective.)

Actively caring for our dead at home and in our community after death is central to most cultural and spiritual traditions. Although the funeral industry is a relatively recent intervention, many of us have become overly reliant on what funeral directors tell us and no longer know how to care for our dead ourselves.

In Aotearoa/New Zealand Maori traditions have continued to care for the dead at home and on the marae and growing numbers of non-Maori are reclaiming more personalised approaches to death.

Death can be a beautiful and healing experience, sad as it might be. We can all learn to be more comfortable when facing this important time of transition to assist ourselves and others. This will be an interactive workshop about the choices and requirements when caring for our dead, a time to remember our dead, and an opportunity to learn from each other's experiences.
