Medical Assistance in Dying Ceremony

Be Ceremonial’s unique platform helps you create a medical assistance in dying ceremony that reflects your story. Choose from our extensive library of secular rituals and create a ceremony to honour this time of change. 

What is a medical assistance in dying ceremony?

Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) is a process through which a doctor or nurse practitioner assists an individual, at their request, to intentionally end their life. MAiD is administered with the aids of drugs that can be taken orally or administered intravenously.

Our medical assistance in dying ceremony offers secular and universal rituals that can support the person dying, their loved ones, and their larger community. It can take place before, during, or after the death, and it even can incorporate folks who aren’t there physically so that they have an opportunity to express their grief and feel connected to the experience from afar.

Why is it important?

We are becoming increasingly aware of the need for ritual and ceremony surrounding this experience. No matter what you believe or don’t believe in, there’s a role for ritual in the MAiD experience because it encourages us to process this experience with our mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness in mind.

Rituals can help the person who is dying, their loved ones, and the wider community feel have a sense of agency during a time that can feel chaotic and overwhelming. A ceremony can help people express their love and their grief in a specific, contained way, giving them an opportunity to process this experience on different levels.

How do I create one?

However you choose to acknowledge this time of transition, our app will guide you through the process. You can choose to create a ceremony on your own, with a friend, or as a group. You can even gift this experience to someone you care for.

With hundreds of universal rituals to choose from, our app offers something for everyone. Simply follow our ritual framework to create a ceremony unique to you.
