LIFE BY LIFE currently initiates grief healing by encouraging family participation at the end-of-life and during transition. Our funerals are led by the family and facilitated in the home, outdoors, or wherever a family may choose. We provide educational support, guidance and community outreach opportunities to get the word out about what we do, because we believe an empowered and educated public will make healthy choices and decisions for themselves and the environment. Death is as natural as birth and we hope to push fears aside and shine a new light on the end-of-life.” — John Christian
Life By Life works in conjunction with Larkspur Conservation by providing education about their forthcoming conservation burial ground in Tennessee. Conservation burial occurs in a nature preserve that allows low-impact, mindful, natural burial. Conservation burial is the most ecologically and socially responsible end-of-life option available. The practice of burying a casketed or shrouded body into the earth reduces carbon emissions and end-of-life expenses while fostering local ecosystems and increasing quality of life (including grief) for the whole family. By partnering with an environmental organization a conservation easement protects the land forever from development, contamination and abuse. With each Larkspur burial an investment is made to our natural home, creating a living memorial to be enjoyed by everyone, forever.
