    EP 51: Death and the Importance of Ceremony and Ritual with Linda Stuart

    EP 51: Death and the Importance of Ceremony and Ritual with Linda Stuart

    In the episode of Soul Sister Conversations, we speak with Linda Stuart, a Life Cycle Celebrant who crafts transformational ceremonies like funerals and weddings. Linda grew up in a family business that created monuments. Linda Stuart found her true calling after talking with her father who concerned that people weren’t having funerals anymore. Recognizing the importance of having a gathering when someone dies, Linda set out to create ceremonies with warmth, humour and storytelling giving the loved one’s meaning despite their religious or faith background. We talk about modern funerals, how funerals are for the living not the dead and the importance of ceremony and ritual.
