CROSSINGS is an initiative of the Sophia Center for Life Studies...
...that serves as a home funeral and green burial resource center. We exist to foster the integration of dying and after-death care back into our family and community life. We strive to increase awareness of alternatives to conventional funeral and burial care. We believe that home funeral and green burial care are more meaningful, affordable, and environmentally responsible. We work particularly in educating the family to act as its own funeral director – which is legal in almost all 50 States.
We do this through:
- Education—letting families know that they are THE decision-makers in after-death care and can exercise choices that will bring about greater healing.
- Information—making information available on the exact choices available to you in creating a better experience in after-death care whether working with or without a funeral director.
- Inspiration—disseminating stories of people who have transformed their experiences around death by creating unique, memorable and beautiful after-death care.
