Take a moment to recall memorial rituals you have attended or planned. Think about why you felt it was important to participate in a funeral and/or memorial service. Did you find comfort in sharing the ritual with others? If these memories cause you pain, acknowledge it, and release it for the time you are leading this session. Take a deep breath and think of times and ways memorial rituals have been positive affirmations of your faith and sources of comfort.
