Business mentoring for new celebrants

“Matriarch; a woman who is the head of a family or tribe, an older woman who is powerful within a family or organisation.”


I’ve led a few Funerals just recently where the person who’s died has been described as a Matriarch – the hub of the family, keeping it all together and presiding over all that it does.

It’s sad but I have an overwhelming sense that it’s a description that will wane over time.  As society continues to change and as families become more extended and fragmented, then the central hub of family life will have less focus.  I wonder if eulogies that get written in 20 or 30 years time, will ever touch upon the role of the much loved Matriarch – I somehow doubt it.
