with Caleb Wilde
Welcome to this presentation by Caleb Wilde, author of the book and popular blog: "Confessions of a Funeral Director." Caleb will discuss how working in the funeral industry helped him discover the"spirituality of death" and craft a new positive narrative about death and dying for his own life.
Caleb Wilde is a sixth generation funeral director and embalmer at his family's business, Wilde Funeral Home, in Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, where he lives. He has a graduate degree in theology, a certificate in Thanatology and recently completed postgraduate work at Winchester University, England, in the program, "Death, Religion and Culture." He writes the popular blog Confessions of a Funeral Director, and just published a book by the same title: Confessions of a Funeral Director: How the Business of Death Saved My Life.
