The New Funerals: A Town Hall Discussion by Farewelling
The discussion will welcome thoughts, questions and feelings around The New Funerals, and the possibilities around technology, gathering, and personalizing a memorial or celebration of life.

Even before COVID-19, the ways in which we honor a loved one who has died were changing. But now more than ever, we must explore how we can come together in ways both virtual and “in the real world,” to celebrate a beautiful life, beautifully. Farewelling co-founders Elizabeth Karansky (funeral director, thanatologist and death doula) and Karen Bussen (internationally recognized events expert) host this open conversation about how funerals are being transformed, by restrictions related to current events, but also by evolving attitudes around tradition, religion, and other factors.
