Olivia Bareham, is a is a non-denominational Minister of Healing, a certified Death Midwife, Home Funeral Guide and Celebrant. In 2006, Olivia founded ‘Sacred Crossings’ in an effort to empower individuals to chose a conscious dying experience and to support their families in creating a personal and deeply meaningful funeral at home.

"A home funeral is a family or community-centered response to death and after-death care. Through many millennia, this was the way we used to care for our dead, within the context of the family or the community. Most state laws support the right of the family to care for their own departed. Depending on the specifics of each state’s law, families and communities may play a key role in:

  • Planning and carrying out after-death rituals or ceremonies (such as laying out the deceased and home visitation of the body)
  • Preparing the body for burial or cremation
  • Filing of death-related paperwork such as the death certificate
  • Transporting the deceased to the place of burial or cremation
  • Facilitating the final disposition such as digging the grave in natural burial

Olivia holds classes and workshops in Death Midwifery, Conscious Dying, Alternative After-death Care, and Green Funerals and Burials. For more information, please visit the website,www.sacredcrossings.com,  or call:  310-968-2763
