Teachers and Coaches

Our teachers, coaches and hosts are all over the world, and their mission is to educate, inspire and empower millions to make their last wishes and live their legacy.

Last Wishes invites you to join us to discuss end-of-life planning and death and dying in a safe space.

They help create peace of mind, for yourself and your loved ones as they take you by the hand to look at your end-of-life considerations. Helping you understand the choices available and the impact those choices can have on your family, friends, community and the environment.


As a result of attending two extraordinary pre-arranged funerals where everyone left feeling uplifted, Jean life’s mission has been offering people ideas that would well and truly celebrate the lives of unique people in unique ways. Last Wishes Workshops and Courses impart Jeans' knowledge and encourage people to make their end of life plans. She is based in Sussex, UK.



Discovering first hand how attending a Last Wishes workshop ensured Dawn would indeed know and be able to fulfill her mother's Last Wishes. Dawn is passionate to share all she has learnt, so others may too have greater peace of mind while tending to a loved one and saying goodbye gracefully.


As an independent celebrant, Nicole is deeply drawn to ensuring those who desire it, should experience the profound ways we can honour our loved ones. Thereby celebrating their lives in meaningful ways. She saw the trouble her mother went through sorting out her father's estate. Last Wishes covers everything participants could hope for, and more. Nicole is based in Australia.


The happiness and wellbeing of people and our planet has informed Amanda's career as a teacher, environmental activist and healer for nearly thirty years. In this day and age we are not encouraged to be open about death. The serious consequences of this, for both our health and the wellbeing of our planet, are what led Amanda to join Last Wishes.

She joined the Last Wishes team to encourage these conversations in her local community. Jo has seen first-hand the peace of mind of locals have experienced attending Last Wishes courses.

What our Customers are Saying About Us

Jean leaves no stone unturned, no aspect unexplained – and I had no idea it would be such fun. Under her sensitive guidance and with her extensive knowledge of what is possible… Thank you Jean, for your inspired, humorous and down-to-earth approach to a subject that is so often considered taboo.

Tricia in her 60s

This workshop is well worth attending as there’s a mine of thought-provoking information and Jean facilitates with compassion, warmth and humour.
Marion F in her 50s

Jean’s little funeral books are packed with inspiration. The reader will be hard pushed to think of things that are not included and ideas that she does not touch on.

It was a wonderfully inspiring day, that taught me so much. I would recommend it to anyone. It was a real fun day. And at the end of it you come out with something of real value for your loved ones, when they will need it most… If you get the chance to… attend… !

Lional in his 60’s

Attending a Last Wishes Workshop proved to be one of the best decisions I have made. It opened up the whole subject in such a lovely way and raised my awareness of alternative and loving ways to say goodbye and to honour a loved one. I so wish I had had this knowledge many years ago when my husband died. I would highly recommend this workshop to everyone.
