SOLD OUT! Undertaking LA is currently offering it's first workshop, Wake Up Los Angeles, January 15th at the Center for Inquiry. It will cover California State Laws that regulate taking care of the dead at home as well as general logistics and paperwork.
In the coming months we will offer larger training sessions and workshops to help those not currently experiencing a death feel better prepared when the time ultimately comes. If you are interested in being put on our mailing list please feel free to message us with "ULA Trainings" as the subject and we will add you to our updates. You can message us through our Contact page.
In the meantime, you will find links to other organizations below.
Order of the Good Death member Cassandra Yonder has created the BEyond Yonder Virtual School for Death Midwifery in Canada to address the growing need for requests about becoming a home funeral guide or death midwife. For those interested, she has created a 12 week core program that is an online shared experienced taught by Canadian leaders in the field. You can find a link to her virtual school here.

So fear not, even if you're not in Los Angeles there are lots of other people that want to help you! They even have two separate pages one for Home Funeral Guides for those wishing to hold an at-home funeral and one for Home Funeral Educators for those wishing to be trained as a facilitator.
