Strictly Die Laughing

Humanist Celebrant, Guy Otten, addresses the subject of death and funerals in a light hearted way. What does a skeptic do — or any one who does not hold with religion — when thinking about a funeral? Humanist funerals have been offered for decades to those for whom religious language and ideas are foreign. In the context of the retreat of religion in the UK, Guy discusses the range of options, the mechanics — from how to go about arranging a humanist funeral to how they are created in conjunction with the family and then delivered.

The presentation includes a brief outline of humanism, and the philosophy underlining such funerals.
