We have delivered the NDCC DEATHWALKER TRAININGS and FUNERAL MASTER CLASS workshops to hundreds of people.
As a bonus and to assist people looking for a Deathwalker, Celebrant or service in your area, we offer a Resource Directory for those who have attended our workshops and are providing related services in various aspects of holistic death work.

Also listed are community based Death Cafe hosts, Hospice Services, NGO Funeral Directors and Threshold Choirs. We list some of the national Cold Bed Providers so the body can be kept cold at home after death.

Choose a State to find who and what services are available to you.

Please note:These people and services are not part of the NDCC and we do not take any responsibility or vouch for the services they provide, we list them in good faith.
