About Miranda

"Everyone is equal in death" - a powerful idea, but rarely true in practice. I believe everyone deserves a healthy relationship with mortality grounded in accurate facts, science, history and most importantly- is grounded in their beliefs and culture. 

I have attended too many funerals in my life that are cold, impersonal, and did not reflect any aspect of the recently departed. When I heard about the 'death positive movement' and that loved ones could be celebrated in a non secular and  personal way I felt called to this path - to not just help those in grief but that of the departed- to honor the beloved dead fully and accurately at the grand finale of their life on earth.

I whole heartedly believe in the veneration of our ancestors - and to become a loving ancestor in the future- the work must begin in the here and now.

As a member of The Order of the Good Death I believe in the following:

I believe that by hiding death and dying behind closed doors we do more harm than good to our society. 

I believe that the culture of silence around death should be broken through discussion, gatherings, art, innovation, and scholarship

I believe that talking about and engaging with my inevitable death is not morbid, but displays a natural curiosity about the human condition. 

I believe that the dead body is not dangerous, and that everyone should be empowered (should they wish to be) to be involved in care for their own dead. 

I believe that the laws that govern death, dying and end-of-life care should ensure that a person's wishes are honored, regardless of sexual, gender, racial or religious identity. 

I believe that my death should be handled in a way that does not do great harm to the environment. 

I believe that my family and friends should know my end of life wishes, and that I should have the necessary paperwork to back- up those wishes. 

I believe that my open, honest advocacy around death can make a difference, and can change culture.
