Death Expo Encore Interview:

Jerrigrace Lyons

"Final Passages:

Reawakening the Sacred at the End of Life"

(or use the audio player below)

Jerrigrace Lyons is the founder and director of Final Passages, the first death midwifery and home funeral guidance program in the U.S. In this presentation she will discuss conscious dying and how to create sacred space at the end of life. You will learn how the home funeral movement is changing the perspective on death in our society.


Jerrigrace Lyons has a long history in alternative health care. A Reiki Master, Certified Trager Practitioner, and founder of Final Passages, Jerrigrace also directs the Home Funeral Ministry. She has been interviewed and reviewed in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Mother Earth News, SF Magazine, KRON 4, and CNN Headline News to name a few, and was featured in a new PBS documentary “A family Undertaking,” which aired nationally in 2004.

Jerrigrace founded Final Passages as a result of the unexpected death of her friend Carolyn Whiting. Because of Carolyn’s interest in a natural and conscious approach to death care, she left detailed instructions for a home funeral. Jerrigrace was a participant in Carolyn’s home funeral and was profoundly moved by the entire three-day experience. Community participation and ceremony, at home, supported those grieving and allowed more time for closure. The bathing and dressing of her body was performed with dignity and honor by her friends. Barriers of fear and anger were broken down, giving more room for love and celebration through this important passage. This most personal, meaningful, and respectful experience awakened in her a passion to share it with others. She pioneered Final Passages in 1995 to reawaken a choice that our ancestors once held sacred.
