Beverley Rose Holleyoake offers the following services:
Home funerals -
Offering guidance & empathic support to empower families to honour their love one's final rite of passage & to tenderly be of service to them during the dying process and beyond. In the comfort of their own homes and natural surroundings. In a loving and healing space all members of the family can be supported and nourished in this profound liminal transition. If a person has passed away outside of the home we can still return them home for tender care, blessings, vigils and intimate final farewells working alongside funeral directors or independently if you wish I'm happy to advise & support.
Celebrant & Funeral Orator -
On completion of a one year apprenticeship with Jeanette Holman a highly regarded funeral orator and spiritualist in 2013 I have had the privilege to go on to offer my services to families for a non-religious ceremony averaging 100 plus funerals annually , each one unique to the individual including green alternative funerals. I offer an empowering approach to support families and the individual to be creative in the ceremony to reflect their authentic selves but am also happy to support families in leading a traditional ceremony to add structure as 'mistress of ceremony'. All of which are heartfelt, dignified, deeply meaningful and respectful.
I have a particularly keen interest in meeting individuals before they are deceased to offer support and guidance for their final rite of passage.
Death Midwifery -
Holding a neutral heart-centred space of soft comfort and support, before, during & after their end of life transition. Either supporting family members or individuals who are alone with families far away and would like to know there is support until they can arrive or to be a background support to family members.
Rites of Passage Ceremony & Retreats -
Offering ongoing birthing into love, balancing the inner masculine and feminine, knowing when to be active and when to be receptive healing retreats. Harnessing inner alchemical tools for ongoing healing into wholeness and evolution. Returning to our natural blueprints of love, innocence and radiant vitality and alignment with your higher self hearts & Mind. I have a particular interest in exploring a' reconnection' to the web of life, oneness' & connecting heaven to earth' through embodiment and honouring process - As within so without & as above so below 'gnosis' principle '. These will include the 'Fountain of life teachings' - And other teachings, including 'Star of Ishtar' Inner Goddess and Red Tent facilitator training as I have been reclaiming the archetype of priestess and sacred sexual facilitation as a tool for healing, self discovery and evolution. The divinity of feminine spirituality -'Everything is divine and we are always living in the sacred'.
Liminal Stages, Crises Guidance, Healing, Conscious Living & Dying & Ongoing Support
In times of crises or transition we may find ourselves having to come to terms with unexpected events, death, divorce, terminal diagnosis, illness and in need of gentle guidance and ongoing support in the unfolding process. During an apprenticeship my teacher was diagnosed with bowel cancer and I was able to support her through this difficult transition using a combination of the healing tools listed below 'holding space' and I'm glad to say that she courageously chose not to have chemotherapy after surgery and has been able to gently re-evaluate her life and approach it consciously including returning to work but having a balanced approach. Having had several instances of cancer in my family including parent & grandparents Ibegan researching when my eldest child was born who had high fevers and asthma, amongst other symptoms and through homeopathy I discovered that he had inherited the cancer miasm which essentially left him prediposed to deeper pathology during this life time and I have treated him with homeopathy, biodynamic craniosacral therapy , herbalism and nutrition consistantly for 17 years and I'm happy to say that the layers of the onion have unravelled and he his is healthy and vital today without the miasmic indicators and the whole healing experience has weaved into his story as he takes his health seriously and is very aware of his own process. I have also been privileged to witness many people on their journey into self discovery & healing in the last twenty five years in the alternative wellbeing field which has been a rich source of wisdom and of course also taken my own personal journey through the archetypes, shadow and trauma, soul retrieval to inner resources, cellular knowing, heart/soul wisdom and higher self.
Embodiment & Body intelligence is a wonderfully receptive tool for healing and surrendering to process. It is often the case that the symptoms of the body will give a true indication of underlying issues, somatic tensions, inherited miasmic predisposition to deeper pathology, long held suppressed emotions to release life force energies so a healing transition can occur resulting in a return to a full expression of the holistic vital authentic self. I tap into intuitive fields of loving guidance and higher self to support the healing process and blend the tools listed above to individual needs.
