Perhaps you might not expect the key descriptive words of the owner and director of a funeral home to be sunny, laughter, optimistic, effervescent, compassionate, quirky, thoughtful, courageous – but they describe this one to a T! Wendy Rée has lived fully since her birth and childhood years in small-town Ontario, and her life and work experiences have contributed greatly to her focus on being able to have a “heart-centred” career, which she has found in funeral service.

Wendy came to funeral service after being moved by the care and professionalism she experienced at her grandmother’s death and funeral. She sees a strong correlation between the gentle approach of natural parenting and natural death care, a practice of embracing and celebrating the subtleties of individuals, making Wendy a natural fit with the KORU Cremation | Burial | Ceremony philosophy of funeral practice. She believes in families being fully involved in all death care decisions and thoughtfully provides ways to empower them to do so.  Some of the ways Wendy has contributed to this has been through hosting a home funeral practicum and participating in and successfully completing the Sacred Passages Death Doula training.

Lucca and Rebecca dive in, asking questions expected and unexpected for someone with a profession many folks wonder about!

Leigh’s love and passion for horses was kindled when she was five years old. Her Dad took her to visit a friend’s ponies and from that day forward, horses were a part of her life. If she wasn’t dreaming of horses, she was drawing them, riding or collecting them.

As an adult, Leigh’s passion for animals continued. While her career took her into the corporate world, her home was on acreage with dogs, a donkey, and horses she adopted over the years. Leigh honed her business skills, first in law firms as a paralegal, then as an Assistant Corporate Secretary for an energy company and finally for a governance consulting business. Over the years, there were some major personal changes in her life and Leigh gradually retreated into herself and shut down her emotions. As she spent more time with her horses and became grounded Leigh started to ‘feel’ life again, with renewed mental and physical energy.

In 2016 she came across a program to become a facilitator in Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning®. Becoming a FEEL Practitioner was a life-changing journey that allowed Leigh to partner with her horses and fully develop her intuitive skills and compassion.

Lucca and Rebecca discuss the sweeping changes in Leigh’s life that caused such dramatic change, and hear wonderful stories of the wisdom of horses and how they have impacted the healing of many individuals.
