Time of Death Ceremony

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

What is a Time of Death Ceremony?

This ceremony can help you acknowledge, process, and honour someone at the time of their death, and in the moments following.

The moments surrounding time of death can stir up a myriad of emotions. Things can often feel rushed and disconnected. These rituals help you slow things down so you can hold space for all the emotions you might be holding and give yourself time to say goodbye.

Why is it Important?

Too often we rush through the experience of being with someone after they die. We have been taught to call an ambulance or funeral home right away, when what is often needed is to pause.

These rituals help you move through the experience of caring for a body after someone has died, inviting you to slow things down and connect with your grief and any other emotions that might surface. It can be very healing and supportive to simply spend time with your loved one after they died, whether it’s in your home, at a care home, or in a hospital.

How do I create a Time of Death ceremony?

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.
