After someone’s last breath often people ask “What’s the right thing to do now?” … and what is the right thing to do?

In this online course you will learn how to discern what is right for you, those around you and the person who has taken their last breath. Our aim is that you will gain the knowledge, confidence and curiosity to support you to follow your instincts. We demystify what happens to someone’s body when they die and how to keep it close until you are ready to hand it over. Attention is given to preparing for the last breath, practical body care, soul care, psychological responses and ritual/funeral options. 

The course is suitable for everyone, with any or no spiritual or religious belief. No prior knowledge or experience is required.

Pushing Up The Daisies is a Scottish Charity and here, in Scotland, we are fortunate to have very few laws relating to the care and burial or cremation of someone who has taken their last breath. Most of the material is generally applicable to all situations. However, the legal and cultural perspective is specific to Scotland.
