We at the BEyond Yonder Virtual School for Community Deathcaring in Canada envision a future wherein community centred deathcare is reclaimed.

The mission of the BEyond Yonder Virtual School for Community Deathcaring in Canada is to acknowledge and accept our North American alienation from death, and to encourage cultural reengagement with community centred dying, deathcare and grief.

We seek to accomplish our mission by offering online coursework and a virtual classroom where students can learn together from leaders in the field about remembering how to care for our own dead without professional intervention as we so choose.

Our Values:

  • to honour the grassroots nature of community centred deathcaring
  • to facilitate participation in a shared virtual learning environment where students and teachers are open, discerning and respectful
  • to recognize and build on the innate wisdom of those who practice community centred deathcaring
  • to remain active in shaping the social movement that is community deathcare
