New Brochure by Dr. Alan Wolfelt Teaches the Families You Serve About the Elements of Ceremony

Fort Collins, CO…The Center for Loss and Life Transition announces a new brochure written by Dr. Alan Wolfelt designed to complete the “WHY” of the Funeral set and teach the families you serve about the elements of a meaningful funeral ceremony. The brochure, entitled “Honoring, Remembering, Healing: The pieces of a meaningful funeral,” explains in clear yet gentle language the many essential pieces of the funeral ceremony.

Making use of a multi-colored heart image, Dr. Wolfelt teaches the valuable pieces of the visitation/reception, music, readings, eulogy/remembrance, symbols, actions, and gathering. The brochure is designed to be a compassionate, educational take-home piece for grieving families and funeral home guests. A packet of 100 brochures is $50.00.

This brochure completes the “WHY” of the Funeral set that also includes the brochure “Why We Have Had Funerals Since the Beginning of Time,” two posters for the arrangement room that interface with the two brochures, and a training manual for funeral home staff titled “Educating the Families You Serve about the WHY of the Funeral.”

Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D., is a respected author, educator, and consultant to funeral service. He advocates for the value of meaningful funeral experiences in his death education workshops across North America each year and writes a column for The Director magazine on customer care. He is conducting a 3-day training for funeral directors February 3-5, 2015, in Scottsdale, Arizona, and June 23-25, 2015, in Fort Collins, Colorado.
