Our 2019 Conference is dedicated to blending the work of the head, the hands, and the heart, in the realm of the home funeral. We will explore the spirituality inherent in our work. We will share art and ritual, learning how to better express and confront the intense emotions surrounding after-death care.
Your participation is what will drive our success, and that is why we are working harder than ever before to bring in expert voices and trainers, and to provide safe spaces for complex conversations and deep beneficial learning. There is plenty of fun and reflection to be had, but we want to make sure that you are leaving this year's conference feeling stronger, smarter, better-equipped, and more prepared to approach your work.
Our 2019 Conference will be held amid the 130 acres of natural beauty surrounding Lake McKnight at Oak Ridge Hotel & Conference Center. Located just 30 minutes from downtown Minneapolis and the Minneapolis–St. Paul Airport, this location is a convenient and picturesque place for us to do great works together.
We are elated to announce an incredible guest lineup for this year's conference. 13 speakers from across the death care community will converge for one powerful weekend to share in the art and ritual of family-directed funeral care.
