Transition Guide

"It is my mission to help you accept your life for what it has been (the joys and the sorrows), to make amends where needed, to express gratitude and love to those who have helped you along your way, to reach a level of acceptance and completion that allows you to be in control of your waning days, and to surrender peacefully, without fear, when your time arrives."
- Ginny Farney, The Passing Wisdom Founder

Easing The Passage

As a society, we have forgotten how to honor the dying individual and the dying process. Traditional cultures throughout history have regarded death as an important rite of passage, an initiation, a journey across a spiritual threshold. This concept is often referred to as a conscious death today. Working alongside medical and hospice professionals, I draw upon these ancient skills and traditions, using them to ease the passage of those who are dying and to support those who love them.

Caring for those you love is natural. You have supported your loved one throughout their life as well as during their decline. A home funeral allows you to continue to provide loving care rather than turning your loved one over to strangers in the funeral industry. There is great wisdom and healing to be found in the rituals and ceremonies of caring for your own dead.

Death is a natural, beautiful, and -- believe it or not -- healing process. I am the objective, knowledgeable, and compassionate guide to help you (and your family) navigate this time of transition and finality. The end of life is a sacred time which can be filled with love and healing for the whole family.
