About this episode

In this episode, we're peeling back the layers of holistic death care with Libby Moloney, a pioneer in sustainable and meaningful funeral practices. We explore what it means to handle death not just with professionalism, but with heart and innovation.

Libby shares her journey into holistic funeral care, emphasizing the importance of viewing each life (and death) in its unique context. From the tragic suddenness of accidents to the natural conclusion of a long life, she explains how Natural Grace helps families navigate these diverse experiences with empathy and personalisation. Our discussion isn't just about the mechanics of funeral care but about its profound emotional and spiritual dimensions.

Remember; You may not be ready to die, but at least you can be prepared. 

Take care, 

Catherine
