Rites of Passage
   The David Oldfield books
In this modern world, ceremony and ritual can and should be used to mark every special occasion, from first day at school to retirement, special birthdays and coming-of-age. By paying attention to these markers of our lives, we strengthen our internal and external relationships, with our families, friends and colleagues. As adults, we are sadly aware that some of our youth are struggling, the David Oldfield programmes have been used world-wide to help people of all ages, to record and express their own personal story. Facilitators trained by the International College can provide these courses.

   Funeral books that inform families about the grieving process, special books for and about children
   Questionnaires to help the celebrant with the family interview
The importance of a properly prepared and delivered funeral service to the family, cannot be over-stated. At this most emotional of times, the importance of care and concern with the family is paramount. The funeral ceremony is the place where the family gets to say goodbye and we can plan the ceremony well ahead to save the family stress. The books we offer are selected for credibility and quality.
