Recent news here include:
We have received our federal, tax-exempt, non-profit 501(c)3 status from the IRS as an educational and charitable organization.
This is big for us, as we have been umbrella-ed under a religious organization since 2009, the Sufi organization Leilah and I are ministers in.
We are being supported to expand our work to Oahu, first, to offer ocean body burial, as we are currently the only funeral home in Hawaii offering this. The population on Oahu is 6 times larger then Maui’s, and this expands our outreach to more families.
Bodhi is taking a presentation entitled Spirituality, Sustainability and Death to three of the Hawaiian islands over the next three months, and in April we are bringing Stephen Jenkinson to Maui for an evening talk on his new book, Die Wise.
We have begun meetings in private homes for ‘Dinner with Death’, where friends are invited for an informal discussion on approaching death and end-of-life planning, followed by a pot-luck.
Stop by and check out our newly remodeled store !!
