Megan Sheldon is the co-founder of Be Ceremonial, the world’s first guided ceremony app and online community. Be Ceremonial inspires and empowers people to create their own ceremonies across the life cycle, with a focus on grief, loss and end of life. As a Cultural Mythologist, Secular Celebrant and End of Life Doula, Megan is also striving to change the cultural conversation around death and dying.
With a background in journalism and marketing, Megan ran a successful brand storytelling agency for 13 years. Her own experiences with grief and loss led her to explore the role of ritual in a secular society. She has since co-created hundreds of ceremonies for people around the world, exploring the essential elements of ceremony. These experiences led her to build Be Ceremonial with her husband, making these tools, techniques and rituals accessible to anyone wanting to acknowledge a time of change in their lives with intention and meaning.
