Founded by Reverend Bodhi Be, his wife Leilah Be and Ram Dass Their idea? To start here on Maui, working with families and professionals to engage in advocacy and educational programs on conscious aging, dying and death... Doorway Into Light was born.
A Green Burial and Funeral Ceremony on Maui

Since 2006, Doorway Into Light has been presenting educational programs and trainings in Hawaii, for families and professionals in the field, as well as actively engaged in direct, volunteer support of dying people, their families, their care-givers and those grieving.

Doorway Into Light is still the only non-profit funeral home in Hawaii.

To change our culture, to change our lives, requires the transformation of consciousness and few things shift consciousness as quickly as an awareness of death.

Our values

Heart centered

We are here to help you, at whatever stage of the journey you may find yourself in. We are here to listen and support you in some of life's most precious and difficult moments.

Green & Sustainable

We are bringing forth options for after-death care that are  natural. holistic and environmentally sustainable.

Not for profit

We seek to re-invent and revolutionize the funeral home and the funeral industry, transforming the “business of dying” and returning it to “sacred service”.

We are a family, not a team

We also work with community organizations, such as local hospices, hospitals, non-profits and religious organizations in growing and deepening care for the aging and the dying.
