Death Expo 2017 Keynote:

Caleb Wilde

"Confessions of a Funeral Director:

Transforming the Death-Negative Narrative"

Thursday November 16, 2017

8 am Pacific/11 am Eastern

Join Death Expo host Dr. Karen Wyatt as she and her guest Caleb Wilde discuss his book "Confessions of a Funeral Director: How the Business of Death Saved My Life." They will discuss Caleb's own transformation from viewing death as "always negative" to finding beauty and meaning in death.

In this interview you will learn:

  • How a "death-negative" narrative has developed in our society
  • Why it is important to find a new positive narrative about death
  • How grief can be a form of worship
  • The significance of "Holy Saturday" when we consider grief
  • The power of silence and presence when death is near

Caleb Wilde is a sixth generation funeral director and embalmer at his family’s business, Wilde Funeral Home, in Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, where he lives. He has a graduate degree in theology, a certificate in Thanatology and recently completed postgraduate work at Winchester University, England, in the program, “Death, Religion and Culture.” He writes the popular blog Confessions of a Funeral Director, and just published a book by the same title: Confessions of a Funeral Director: How the Business of Death Saved My Life.
