This created the space for people to understand they needed to take action around death and dying and showed them how.

Dying To Talk

Death, dying and bereavement affect us all; it is a fact of life, but young people often lack the language and confidence to talk about it. This is partly because adults are generally not very good at talking to young people about death. Not being able to talk about death, dying and bereavement can create mental health problems – and other issues – in the future. Here’ll you’ll find information and resources on starting these important conversations.

Peace Pods

PeacePod is a new concept in casket or coffin design and application.  Developed  and crafted in Tasmania, it is, in simple terms, a cardboard casket. The PeacePod is designed to extend our concept of choice and involvement in the selection and preparation of a casket, for the farewell celebration of loved ones. We can’t deny the sorrow and loss that we feel surrounding the event of dying and death, but we can change the way we go about it, planning the funeral ceremony in meaningful ways.

Rebecca Lyons

In 2019 Bec Lyons traveled to six countries on a Churchill Fellowship. She was researching the human relationship to death and ceremony through alternative approaches and technologies. It was a huge effort and this book is the result.

Through an extensive process of interviews and site visits, Bec met with and learned from people who are doing death differently – from funeral directors to doulas to health professionals, and everyone in between. This book aims to document what is happening around the world, what is under development, and what is new to the end of life space. – and how it all might work in Australia.

Rich with personal reflections, this book will give you a detailed insight into what is possible at end of life, what options are emerging and how they fit into an Australian context.

Tara Kelly Styling

Walking into a funeral chapel can be overwhelming. It can feel strange, not quite real, even impersonal.

But when you walk in and recognise things that immediately remind you of that special person, something changes. Those familiar objects bring you closer, and help you remember the person for who they truly are, and will always be. Tara gathers the objects and treasures that tell a person’s story. Using a few or many items, she creates beautiful arrangements that capture the essence of a life—the things someone loved, did, made and shared.
