for the Cremation Storyline
KeepStones – a regenerative way to reclaim a connection with the deceased, encouraging emotional & physical adjustment to the absence a death has created.
KeepStones – a tools & a specialised grief-care service combined. A thoughtful alteration of human or pet cremated remains into tangible solid memory stones. What makes this transformational model unique is the accompanying constellation of rituals, grief support and other meaningful tools. Each person’s experience of grief is unique. It takes time. Loss is the common ground. KeepStones are the remedy for people who find a bag of ash in a container unfitting for their beloved. It might take time before you are ready to consider a process like this. Choosing this transformative model adds a new potential to memorialise the deceased. This natural conversion offers a meaningful tool for recollection, bridging a connection to your loved one at the early or later stages of loss.
We understand the emotional aspect of this choice and that’s why we provide a care package to accompany you along the way, guiding you in a process that supports your bereavement. Each client is matched with a suitable support system to guide them inwardly and outwardly along the journey to revisiting the death of a loved one.
KeepStones facilitate commemoration. They are a sustainable replacement to scattering cremated human or animal remains in nature. This delicate transformation uses environmentally friendly & sustainable raw materials combined with cremated remains. The activity of re-firing the ash alchemises & transforms the deceased’s powdered remains into a new harmonious, organic solid form.
As more people are turning to cremation we aim to support and educate Irish people about their choices. Our method challenges the tradition of dispersing a carbon-based nutritionless ash into the environment as the best outcome. Burying ashes is not supportive of the environment. Cremated ashes contain sodium in amounts that range from 200 to 2000 times what plant life can tolerate. If we are well informed about the negative impacts of our choices we can begin to reduce the risk of a negative consequence to our collective actions over time.
