Kiri Bear :: Cocreating ceremonies for death, dying, grief and loss.
I am a death doula and funeral celebrant, offering spiritual care throughout the end of life to people close to death and their loved ones.
As a professional facilitator I have long experience with creating supportive environments for people to share vulnerably and authentically with each other while maintaining focus on the purpose of the event and the needs of the whole audience.
I am passionate about death and dying as gateways to connection and mutual care. Everyone is going to die and the more we are able to speak about it with our loved ones the more we can support each other through that final transition. Open conversations about death can be an incredible act of love.
I hold space for bereaved people to connect with their experience of loss and love on their own terms and gently support them to find ways to express those emotions through ritual.

I’m so grateful to have had someone to walk with through what, at times felt like unpassable terrain. I strongly encourage anyone who might be journeying with loss to reach out to Kiri for help in unravelling death’s multifaceted gifts.Lucy
Kiri was wonderful to work with, she listened with warm generosity, giving space for all that needed to be said and felt… Her acceptance and acknowledgement of our love cleared the way for my grief to begin to flow freely after having been shamed by my family at the time of his death.
