Changing the face of funerals
Green Fuse has been changing the face of funerals, by training over 800 funeral celebrants and funeral directors / arrangers since 2008, through its award winning funeral directing services (‘Heart & Soul Funerals’ since 1999, and through our book “We Need To Talk About The Funeral”.
Many people now are looking for a more personal funeral experience, and still value and appreciate a sense of sacred ritual to mark the end of a life and the transition of spirit – a funeral with heart and soul rooted in the person’s culture and lifestyle. It is important that each funeral is both a celebration of a life and the mourning of a loss.
Come and train with us if, with the right support and teaching, you feel you could kindly accompany a grieving family, listen carefully to what they want, and help them to put together the right funeral for the person who has died with warmth and calm reassurance. Our aim is to help you to be the best you can be in your own way as a funeral director or celebrant. And we will support you all the way, beyond the end of the course.
Our dedication to you is unsurpassed as we want you to go the extra mile for each family. To facilitate learning we have small groups of up to 8; you are supported with two tutors in every session. We create a safe space in which you can explore the issues of death and dying and caring for the bereaved.
You learn through active workshops, discussion and written work. We value your experiences and the culture in which you will be working.
Our main trainers, Jane Morrell, Simon Smith, Basira Ward and Steve Nimmo are active Funeral Directors running their own businesses and celebrants, with much experience in modern and traditional funerals as well as related qualifications in Funeral Services, Celebrancy, Rites of Passage, Comparative Religion and education. We always bring our new experiences to each course, and a unique set of skills from other careers including counselling and psychotherapy, leadership, drama, floristry and performance.
If you feel excited having read this, but perhaps also a little daunted, then you are the person we are looking for to join our values-led Green Fuse community, committed to improving the standard and changing the face of funerals in the UK.
