What is a Life Tribute?

  • A Life Tribute is a personalized funeral or memorial service experience built upon the stories, shared history, passions, beliefs, accomplishments, traditions, special interests & favorite music that defined a person's life no matter its length.
  • A Life Tribute is a wonderful way for a family to be supported in their loss in a spirit of loving community.

What is a Life Tribute Celebrant?

  • A Life Tribute Celebrant is someone who is trained and certified to meet the ceremonial needs of families at the beginning of their grief journey.
  • A Life Tribute Celebrant is someone who plans and officiates a service that tells, honors and totally reflects the unique life story and personality of the loved one who had died. 

Why Use a Certified Celebrant?

  • Those families who do not have their own clergy or place of worship, or who consider themselves "spiritual, not religious" or "non-religious" are a perfect fit for a Certified Celebrant.
  • Those religious families who want a Life Tribute in advance of or following a liturgical service, or to share a service with their own clergy are a perfect fit for a Certified Celebrant.
  • It is important that families are well-served by someone who understands the value of the funeral or memorial service as a first step in the healing process, and is prepared to offer them the very best experience possible.
  • The in-depth training for Celebrants established by the In-Sight Institute provides the most comprehensive and sensitive education available.
  • The In-Sight Institute's motto is: No more cookie cutter funerals!
