Be Ceremonial’s unique platform helps you create a Scattering Ashes ceremony by choosing from our library of curated rituals to acknowledge your unique experience.

What is a Scattering Ashes Ceremony?

An ash scattering ceremony offers you intentional rituals that can help when it comes to spreading the cremated remains of a loved one. This ceremony can not only help you in the moment, it can also offer rituals that honour your grief moving forward.

When planning the ceremony, consider using real and/or symbolic ashes, such as flower petals or sand. By spreading them somewhere special, you create a place that you can revisit when you want to feel connected to your loved one.

Why is it Important?

Deciding when, where, and how to scatter the remains of a loved one can be a difficult decision. For many, holding onto the cremated remains is important, so you can consider using symbolic items to scatter or spread. You can also consider using small amounts and having micro ceremonies, scattering ashes in different locations or with different people.

By having this ceremonial send off, you not only give yourself and those present an opportunity to say goodbye, you also create a connection spot that you can revisit. However you choose to move through this time, find ways to bring unique touches to the experience so that it honours your relationship with the deceased in a personal way.
