Rev. Olivia Rosemarie Bareham, founder of Sacred Crossings is a certified Death Midwife, Home Funeral Guide and Celebrant. She holds bachelors degrees in Education and Natural Theology in Sacred Healing and is an ordained Inter-faith Minister and Celebrant.Olivias experience as an auxiliary nurse, hospice volunteer and her mothers end-of-life caregiver, inspired her to investigate a more meaningful and personal alternative to traditional funeral practices.
In an effort to provide a way to keep this window open and facilitate the healing process, Olivia immersed herself in the study of death and dying culminating in certification as a Death Midwife and Home Funeral Guide. She subsequently created Sacred Crossings with the mission of empowering and guiding families to reclaim the lost art and healing ritual of a Home Funeral.
