WHY We Need Funerals 3-Day Seminar

  • Fort Collins, CO
In this 3-day seminar, respected author and educator Dr. Alan Wolfelt will explore the reality that NOW, as no time before in history, people are questioning the need for funerals.

This training will help you…

• articulate WHY funerals are essential.

• understand why the funeral’s ceremonial elements, from visitation and music to readings and action combine to create a “sweet spot” of experience for family and friends.

• interface six essential functions of the funeral with the elements of ceremony.

• learn how to convey value every step of the way in the planning process.

• easily overcome a multitude of common objections.

• arrange funerals as a “facilitator,” not a “functionary.”

• care for yourself as you create meaningful funeral experiences.

• safeguard the very future of funerals by helping families make transformations—“decisions that are good for them.”

We invite you to be part of this revolutionary training experience with funeral service innovator Dr. Alan Wolfelt. During your three days in Colorado with him and other participants from across the continent, you will explore the importance of why we have funerals and, most importantly, learn how to articulate the “whys” easily to the families you serve and to your community at large.
